Canada’s tech sector virtual Hill Days to focus on the ‘new normal’ powered by innovative technologyOttawa, ON, May 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TECHNATION, Canada’s national technology industry association, along with leading-edge tech leaders from across Canada, are virtually descending on Ottawa this week to promote the tech sector’s forward-looking recommendations to the federal government. Discussion will include some of Canada’s biggest challenges that face us as we strive to drive economic recovery and innovation adoption. “The Pandemic has proven that digital transformation can make or break economies,” said Angela Mondou, president & CEO of TECHNATION. “TECHNATION and our members, want to influence a more resilient and prosperous future - and we are committed to collaboration with government to execute on the digital investments announced in Budget 2021. This week, we look forward to having bold discussions with Ottawa on how the tech sector can do just that.” “Canada’s tech sector is incredibly well positioned to lead growth in jobs, innovation, and economic development,” added Mike Hilton, president, HPE Canada. “We are ready to help our nation successfully compete on the world stage.” Throughout the week, TECHNATION will engage with Ministers, Members of Parliament, and top departmental officials, focusing on three areas where the tech sector is poised to help Canada recover: Driving the Jobs of the Future: Technology firms are positioned to drive Canada’s economic recovery, fuel the creation of innovative, high-quality, well-paying jobs, and position our changing national economy for long-term success. Canada can and should be a global technology leader, driving growth in all sectors of our economy, but we need the right government policies and support in place to achieve this.Ensuring Canada Thrives in the ’New Normal‘: Canada’s tech sector can help governments, and businesses in all sectors, overcome their challenges and step boldly into the ‘new normal’. This will be achieved through tech adoption, regardless of industry. Canada’s tech sector has solutions to transform Canada’s data capabilities, strengthen our national health system, tackle supply chain issues, safeguard our privacy and security, enable a remote workforce, modernize citizen services, and more.Transforming Canada’s Public Sector: Canada’s tech sector is home to world-leading technologies and innovations that can provide the backbone to a modern, nimble, productive, and efficient public service; one that is able to deliver on the evolving needs of citizens and provide programs and services that are accessible to Canadians wherever they are, under any circumstances. The federal government spends at least $6.8 billion every year on technology, and is promising new, ’generational investments’ to improve its digital footprint including over $3 billion in new funding in Budget 2021. By challenging our nation’s tech sector to meet the Government’s needs within the ‘new normal’, and by shifting the way that industry and government work together, Canada can leverage its substantial spending power as a strategic economic lever to regain its position as a leading-edge digital government; delivering innovative solutions to service delivery that meet the ever-changing expectations of citizens and businesses. Executed strategically, this much-needed investment, will help technology firms across Canada, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs), to scale and grow. Strengthening domestic tech firms can in turn provide solutions to all sectors of our economy, driving productivity, resilience, and job-creation across the nation. Similarly, the federal government’s injection of $2.2 billion in the new Canada’s Digital Adoption Program announced in Budget 2021, will help SMEs across Canada purchase and deploy the technology they need to prosper in the post-pandemic world, driving economic growth across all sectors and employment for thousands of Canadians. TECHNATION looks forward to presenting these ideas and recommendations, to political leaders and departmental officials across the Government of Canada throughout the week.

Tech shares reversed Friday's gains, pulling the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq into negative territory, while industrial and healthcare shares set the blue-chip Dow on course for its fourth consecutive all-time closing high. "You continue to see this rotation between tech-plus and cyclicals, and certainly the spike in inflation of input costs benefits cyclicals in terms of pricing," said Tim Ghriskey, chief investment strategist at Inverness Counsel in New York. The break-even rate on five-year and 10-year U.S. Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) touched their highest levels since 2011 and 2013, respectively.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman urges ChemoCentryx, Inc. (NASDAQ: CCXI) investors with significant losses to submit your losses now. A securities fraud class action is pending and certain investors may have valuable claims. Class Period: Nov. 26, 2019 – May 3, 2021Lead Plaintiff Deadline: July 6, 2021Visit: www.hbsslaw.com/investor-fraud/CCXI Contact An Attorney Now: CCXI@hbsslaw.com 844-916-0895 ChemoCentryx, Inc. (NASDAQ: CCXI) Securities Fraud Class Action: The lawsuit focuses on ChemoCentryx’s statements about its new drug application (“NDA”) for its vasculitis drug candidate Avacopan. Beginning on Nov. 25, 2019, ChemoCentryx touted positive topline data from its Pivotal Phase III ADVOCATE trial demonstrating Avacopan’s superiority over standard of care in ANCA-associated vasculitis and that the trial met both of its primary endpoints. This and subsequent positive announcements sent the price of CCXI soaring. The complaint alleges ChemoCentryx concealed that: (1) the trial’s study design was flawed; (2) data from the trial raised serious safety concerns; and (3) these issues presented a substantial concern about the viability of ChemoCentryx’s NDA. On May 4, 2021, the truth emerged when the FDA announced it had identified several areas of concern, including “uncertainties about the interpretability of the data and the clinical meaningfulness of these results.” In addition, the document took issue with the complex trial design and the lack of long-term safety data. This news drove the price of ChemoCentryx shares crashing over 45% lower on May 4, 2021, wiping out as much as $1.5 billion of the company’s market capitalization. “We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving ChemoCentryx misled investors about Avacopan’s efficacy and safety,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
