Hydrogen and Fuel Cells

Canada is recognized internationally as a global leader in hydrogen and fuel cell research, development and early stage commercialization. Canada is a large producer and user of hydrogen and home to a significant concentration of hydrogen and fuel cell expertise. Canada's industry is diverse and represents all elements within the supply chain.

The sector largely consists of small- and medium-sized enterprises and research organizations. It is supported by a well-educated labour force with advanced skills—key ingredients in building Canada's knowledge economy. Canadian companies have established a competitive global position resulting from years of research, development and demonstration activities. The largest cluster of hydrogen and fuel cell companies in Canada is located in British Columbia, according to the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Sector Profile 2012. Other clusters are located in Ontario, Quebec and Alberta.
