Message from the Governor General of Canada on the Occasion of the Science Odyssey

OTTAWA, May 12, 2017 /CNW/ - Throughout my mandate as governor general, I have worked to promote learning and innovation. It therefore gives me great pleasure to mark Science Odyssey 2017, a huge celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in Canada, taking place from May 12 to 21.

Canadians rank among the world's leading and most dynamic scientists. Their outstanding and transformative work helps to shape our future and improve our quality of life. By following their lead and making innovation a part of our daily lives, we all stand to benefit.

Over the next 10 days, young and old alike are invited to take part in hundreds of activities, conferences and encounters organized across the country. What an incredible opportunity to have fun, learn something new and find inspiration!

I would like to thank the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada for organizing this wonderful initiative. I encourage everyone to make the most of this opportunity and wish you a multitude of fascinating discoveries.

Enjoy the Odyssey!
