From growing demand for network bandwidth to the advent of "cleantech", the Canadian technology sector is facing numerous challenges — and opportunities.
Technology has come to play an essential role in the everyday lives of Canadians. Growing demand for network bandwidth and cheaper, faster, and more feature-rich devices is driving the technology sector. At the same time, we want our technology to be environmentally friendly.
This presents a unique set of business issues to companies operating in the Canadian technology sector. Research and development strategies and access to capital are as important as ever, but growing public concern about environmental sustainability is presenting new challenges as well as new market opportunities (many of which are being creatively explored by the emerging "cleantech" sector).
