“Today’s tour of the Xerox Research Centre of Canada was an impressive demonstration of the great R&D that is taking place here in Mississauga,” Bains said. “Through its investment in the XRCC, Xerox Canada is making an important commitment to developing the kind of innovative and ground-breaking products that will help transform and improve the lives of Canadians, while also reinforcing the strength and innovative capacity of Canada’s manufacturing sector.

My tour, along with the roundtable discussion with the Association of Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters, has shown me that Canada’s manufacturers are capable of tremendous, and potentially ground-breaking innovation.”

Dr. Paul Smith, vice president, XRCC was also on hand to discuss advancements in printed electronics, smart objects, devices, sensors and materials related to advanced manufacturing.

“Innovation is a critical success factor for Canada’s long-term economic resilience,” Smith said. “We have a long-standing commitment to supporting Canada’s capacity to innovate and commercialize research outcomes.

We were very honoured to show Minister Bains some of the work we are doing in advanced materials research and the partnerships – including the creation of the Canadian Campus for Advanced Materials Manufacturing with the National Research Council Canada – that we are developing to help Canadian start-ups commercialize their ideas right here in Canada.”
