Canada scores 5.27 and falls seven place to rank 12th among the Innovation-driven economies on the Connectivity Scorecard 2013 index. In 2012, Canada held the 5th rank.
In previous years, Canada, Finland and the United Kingdom have been relatively close to each other; but changes in metrics led to Canada’s lower score. Canada is together with Singapore the biggest movers in the ranking.
Canada performs solidly on the business-related components of the Scorecard. This performance conceals some of its deficiencies such as the substantially lower level of ICT investment per capita in Canada, especially when compared to the United States.
