The Standards Council of Canada’s (SCC) 2016–17 Annual Report, entitled Delivering Through Innovation, was recently published. As the report outlines, SCC continued our work to provide value to Canada while embracing a leadership role in standardization in Canada, as well as regionally and internationally. We also supported Canadian government priorities by working to help Canadian communities become more resilient to a changing climate, and improving harmonization and free trade within Canada and internationally.
We complemented that work with a successful initiative to help Canadian businesses. Our approach leverages international standardization to offer Canadian innovators a competitive advantage and, ultimately, deliver economic benefit for Canada.
By working with Canadian businesses, research institutions and key industries, we can help ensure innovative Canadian products and services are delivered to the world. Through standardization, SCC is helping to lay the foundation for a thriving culture of innovation in Canada in the years ahead.
