On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to everyone participating in the Ontario Centres of Excellence Discovery Conference.
As Premier, I believe that innovation and creativity are vital to strengthening our institutions and energizing our economy. It is also key to securing our future.
Building communities of knowledge — enterprises and individuals who share information, exchange ideas and discuss best practices — is essential to creating a strong innovation infrastructure. That is why I would like to commend the delegates to this conference for coming together to discuss the challenges facing your respective sectors — and to offer ideas and possible solutions.
I wish to commend the Ontario Centres of Excellence for hosting this conference. Conferences like this strengthen the linkages we have established and set the stage for future innovations and partnerships.
Please accept my sincere best wishes for a productive and highly successful conference.
