Innovation, Creativity, and Governance in Canadian City-Regions

Starting in 2006, the Innovation Systems Research Network began a six-year-long study on how city-regions in Canada were surviving and thriving in a globalized world. That study resulted in the Innovation, Creativity, and Governance in Canadian City-Regions series, which examines the impact of innovation, talent, and institutions on sixteen city-regions across Canada.
