David Pratt, M.P. for Nepean-Carleton will be hosting a Community

of the Canadian Advanced Technology Association. Representatives from 
over 40 companies and organizations have already confirmed their

weaknesses of the local high technology industry. 

The discussions will focus on what role government should be playing 
in support of the this sector from the standpoint of tax policy, 
trade promotion, education and training, research and development and 
support programs such as Technology Partnerships Canada and the 
Scientific Research and Experimental Development tax credit. 

Following presentations from the panel members, the floor will be
