CASA issues recommendations on digital infrastructure, student IP rights in Innovative Agenda Submission

October 12, 2016

The Canadian Alliance of Student Associations has released its Roadmap for Canadian Innovation as part of its 2016 Innovative Agenda Submission. The report highlights areas where strategic investments in Canadian PSE can help drive innovation while boosting student success. Among the issues addressed by the report’s recommendations are financial barriers faced by master’s and international students, the scarcity of paid student internship opportunities, the insufficient quality of digital infrastructure in rural and remote communities, and the lack of intellectual property rights protecting students. “The students of today are our future scientists, entrepreneurs, community leaders, and more,” said CASA Executive Director Michael McDonald. “It’s up to us as a nation to ensure that each and every student is given the chance to develop their skills and reach their full potential.” CASA | Report
