Mr. Speaker, earlier this week, the Minister of State for Science and Technology further delivered on our government's commitment to research and development. He announced 132 newly awarded or renewed Canada research chairs, to attract and retain the world's best researchers right here in Canada.
With this funding, our researchers will continue making advances in disease prevention and treatment, information technology, and genetics, to name only a few.
Our government has made investments in science and technology across the board, from basic research and discovery all the way through to commercialization.
Canadians can count on our government to continue investing in science and technology to create jobs, grow our economy and improve the quality of life of Canadians.
