For the past two years the Science Council of Canada has been engaged in a broadly‐based study of Canadian manufacturing industry. The Council sensed along with other institutions, that our industries in the seventies are suffering from numerous maladies only some of which are caused by world recession and other recent economic circumstances. As befits its mandate, a great deal of attention has been paid to the technological component of our industrial difficulties. The Science Council is presently studying policy initiatives appropriate to the creation of a more viable manufacturing base. Sufficient research has been completed to give some broad indications of the conclusions being reached on the nature and causes of our industrial dilemma, and of the type of policy response which the Science Council believes is essential to redirect manufacturing towards viability.
