Canada's Semiconductor Council

Canada’s Semiconductor Council is a national industry coalition dedicated to accelerating the growth and development of Canada’s semiconductor sector.

We aim to:

  • Drive consensus on a national strategy for sustained growth of the semiconductor sector, as an engine for Canadian economic growth and as a key enabler of other industry sectors.
  • Advocate on the priorities, issues and opportunities, and create and implement programs for Canada’s semiconductor sector.
  • Provide focused networking opportunities for informal knowledge sharing and collaboration among members.

Roadmap to 2050: Canada’s Semiconductor Action Plan

Roadmap to 2050: Canada’s Semiconductor Action Plan is the report and action plan published by the Council and lays out short-, medium-, and long-term recommendations to build Canada’s semiconductor industry. Over Summer 2021, the Council interviewed over 100 stakeholders across Canada to gain data-driven insights that inform the action plan and recommendations.
