This study offers an in-depth analysis of the development of computer and information technologies from the unique Canadian perspective. There are two dominant themes in the narrative: the early origins of computing in Canada, and the later development of microcomputing. These themes correspond to two critical periods in the Canadian history of high technology, one characterized by actively pursuing the creation of self-reliant computer and digital electronics industries, and the other, by the explosion of technological and social activities leading to the development of the personal computer and its profound technological status and social acceptance.
