The Honourable Greg Rickford, Minister of State (Science and Technology and Federal Economic Development Initiative for Northern Ontario) to Address Economic Club and SDTC

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 1, 2013) - The event will explore how Canada's natural resource sector is a source of economic growth and of strategic importance to our future. We will investigate Canada's place in the global ecosystem and address global opportunities, where cleantech plays into this space and how is it adding additional value to this sector. How can policy influence the uptake and finance of clean, innovative technologies?
