2021: A year in review

A global supply-chain crisis. An enduring pandemic. A snap federal election. 2021 was a year of disruption: we saw record funding trends, an urgent call for aggressive climate action from both the public and private sectors and a crypto bull market that regulators are racing to rein in.

The Logic’s editor-in-chief David Skok was joined by reporters Anita Balakrishnan, Claire Brownell, Catherine McIntyre, Martin Patriquin and Aleksandra Sagan to look back at the newsmakers and most important stories of 2021, the trends that emerged, and what it means for Canada and the larger innovation economy.
