Into the Scale-up-Verse: Exploring the Landscape of Canada’s High-performing Firms

This report is the first of its kind in Canada and a direct result of almost four years of industry-academic-government collaboration between Delvinia, the University of Toronto’ Innovation Policy Lab, Mitacs, and the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship to capture the data to help frame future economic policy that will support the growth of Canadian scale-up firms.

This research was inspired by the five-year SSHRC funded research partnership conducted within the Innovation Policy Lab, entitled Creating Digital Opportunity for Canada. The data and insights in this paper will provide the context and timely information that scaleup CEOs, the academic research community, and government policymakers need to affect policy change and to ensure the long-term economic prosperity of Canada.
