Innovation Canada

From Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada

At Innovation Canada, we back innovators.


This is where it begins.

With an idea.

An idea that could change the world.

Bringing that idea to life—
—means long days—
—and longer nights.

Because innovation isn’t about quick wins.

It’s about dedication.

And finding the right backer.

Someone who will make things happen.

Who will give you honest advice.

Who will fund you—
—and introduce you to the right people.

That’s what we do.

We back innovators like you.

Because what you’re building—
—is helping us build a better Canada.

From funding to expert advice to driving new collaborations, our flagship programs and services are designed to help businesses innovate, create jobs and grow Canada’s economy.

We back possibilities. Through programs like the Innovative Superclusters Initiative. It’s about strengthening Canada’s most promising clusters, where private sector, academic institutions, not-for-profits, and others come together to energize economies and create resilient, well-paying jobs. And the Strategic Innovation Fund which invests in innovative businesses—helping them scale-up, research, develop and commercialize cutting-edge ideas and collaborate in new ways.

We back big ideas. Through programs like Innovative Solutions Canada. It creates opportunities for innovators to solve government challenges with the financial backing needed to develop their good ideas into tangible solutions.

We back game changers. Through services like our Clean Growth Hub. It gives entrepreneurs and businesses with clean technology projects a personal guide to answer questions, talk through options or make introductions. And our Accelerated Growth Service, which is all about rolling up our sleeves to give high-growth companies one advisor for all of government... someone to knock on doors, pick up the phone and make the right connections.

And now, the Innovation Canada digital platform now brings it all together in one place. It's the place to go to get a tailored list of everything that government can do for your business.
