Spending on research and development (R&D) in Canada's higher education sector increased by 3.4% on a fiscal-year basis between 2010-11 and 2011-12 to $11.6 billion, according to new data from Statistics Canada. The data also shows that provincially, R&D spending by PSE institutions increased in every province except PEI and Saskatchewan, and that Ontario and Quebec combined continue to report about two-thirds of R&D spending. These 2 provinces have the highest concentration of universities, research hospitals, experimental stations and clinics in Canada. StatsCan Website
