The central argument of this paper is that the future of GIS in Canada depends upon a greater degree of cooperation among government, industry and the academic community. Although important steps have been taken to create institutional linkages between industry and government, the linkages between both of these sectors and the academic community is weak. The paper will examine the reasons for this situation and suggest ways in which improvements can be made. -from Author
