Michelle Brownlee, Smart Prosperity Institute's Director of Policy, delivered these remarks on "Clean Technology in Canada’s Natural Resources Sectors" to the House of Commons’ Standing Committee on Natural Resources in February 2017.

Smart Prosperity Institute has been looking at the public policy levers to accelerate clean innovation in Canada for the past 2.5 years.  Our work is informed by a literature review of both the academic and grey literature, a conference that we held in Calgary (with government, academic, think tank and industry representatives), and a series of over 40 interviews with a broad cross-section of experts from business and public policy.
