George T. Solomon, associate professor of management, was invited to a luncheon meeting on May 15 with Marie-Josée Thivierge, Industry Canada’s assistant deputy minister for small business, tourism and marketplace services. Thivierge is the Canadian government official responsible for all small business policies and programs as well as policies on innovation, entrepreneurship and investment. In this capacity, she serves as the principal advisor to the minister of industry on these issues. The luncheon meeting was designed to allow the deputy minister an opportunity to obtain input on small business policy from a small gathering of experts familiar with public policy programs and issues in the United States.
