About the host

The Institute for Competitiveness & Prosperity is an independent, not-for-profit organization that deepens public understanding of macro and microeconomic factors behind Ontario’s economic progress. We are funded by the Government of Ontario and are mandated to share our research findings directly with the public. 


Research by the Institute is intended to raise public awareness and stimulate debate on a range of issues related to competitiveness and prosperity. It is the aspiration of the Institute to have a significant influence in increasing Ontario and Canada’s competitiveness, productivity, and capacity for innovation. We believe this will help ensure continued success in creating good jobs, increasing prosperity, and building a higher quality of life. We seek breakthrough findings from our research and propose significant innovations in public policy to stimulate businesses, governments, and educational institutions to take action.


For nearly 16 years, the Institute has advocated for the development of strong clusters in the province of Ontario to close the prosperity gap between the province and its peer jurisdictions. We remain the only source for Canadian cluster data and is recognized for our focused work on clusters.
