It says it will advocate for the semiconductor industry with the federal and provincial governments and develop a made-in-Canada action plan for leadership across the global sector.

Members of the group include the Council of Canadian Innovators, CMC Microsystems, the Alliance for Semiconductor Innovation, Canada’s Semiconductor Council and the Canadian Innovation Network.

The U15 Group of Canadian Research Universities, Optonique and ISEQ are also members.

Semiconductor supply chains were snarled during the COVID-19 pandemic and many companies found themselves scrambling to make or obtain as many of the chips as possible.
