Abstract: The innovation economy is both a driver and an outgrowth of a knowledge-based society that requires us to ensure our graduates are not only content experts in their fields of choice, but also expert learners, able to adapt to our changing world. College graduates are vital to the national economy; Canada ranks first in the OECD attainment of tertiary education only when College education is factored in. George Brown College has an important role in addressing both the skills shortage and the skills gap within Ontario and across Canada. The skills shortage exists because there are not enough skilled workers to do the jobs of today. The skills gap exists in those workers who will need to learn new skills in order to do the jobs of tomorrow. Our role in promoting innovation literacy makes us ideal participants in an innovation economy that promotes partnership, entrepreneurship, and educational pathways for students, industry and community partners alike. Our common goal is increasing social and economic productivity in Canada.
