Industrial policy is a vital and important field that contributes to decisions about public policy and business and is directly responsible for promoting growth and increasing competitiveness in local and global economies. Examining the most significant industrial policy issues in Canada, Industrial Organization in Canada presents contributions from the top Canadian researchers in this field, who survey both new directions in the field and areas that have been neglected but remain important.

Using state-of-the-art empirical techniques, contributors address the policy challenges raised by globalization, the internet and other technological advances, innovation, and the rise of security measures in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Chapters are organized around five themes: recent developments and policy challenges, Canadian firms in the information age, research and development and innovation, regulation and industrial performance, and securing trade and investment opportunities. The only substantive research volume on this subject in two decades, Industrial Organization in Canada is a welcome resource for policy makers, researchers, and academics concerned with industrial policy issues in contemporary Canada. Contributors include Ajay Agrawal (University of Toronto), Doug Allen (Simon Fraser University), Werner Antweiler (University of British Columbia), John Baldwin (Statistics Canada), Zhiqi Chen (Carleton University), Jean-Étienne de Bettignies (Queen's University), Marc Duhamel (Industry Canada), James Gaisford (University of Calgary), Avi Goldfarb (University of Toronto), Wulong Gu (Statistics Canada), Kathryn Harrison (University of British Columbia), Patrick Joly (Industry Canada), William Kerr (University of Saskatchewan), Kevin Koch (PricewaterhouseCoopers), Donald G. McFetridge (Carleton University), Peter W. B. Phillips (University of Saskatchewan), Mohammed Rafiquzzaman (Industry Canada), Someshwar Rao (Institute for Research on Public Policy), Thomas W.
