Industrial R&D up in NB

Industrial R&D spending in New Brunswick is up strongly in recent years.  NB companies still spend a fraction of the big four provinces on R&D but we are moving up.  Don’t forget this is only industrial spending.  Overall R&D spending in NB (industrial, government and institutional combined) is still, I believe, either dead last or second last in Canada among the 10 provinces.

 Total intramural research and development expenditures – per capita (2007)

Quebec $613
