Science, Technology and Innovation Council

Mandate and Members

The Science, Technology and Innovation Council (STIC) was created in 2007 to serve as the Government of Canada’s external advisory body in the domain of science, technology and innovation (STI). The Council has a dual mandate: to provide the government with confidential advice on STI policy issues critical to Canada’s economic development and societal well-being; and to produce biennial public reports—State of the Nation—measuring Canada’s STI performance against international standards of excellence.
