Innovation Superclusters Initiative
Right people. Right place. Right time.
When companies of all sizes, academic institutions and not-for-profits come together, they generate bold new ideas. Ideas that wouldn't have otherwise come to light. Our investment in Canada's five Superclusters will help build first-rate innovation ecosystems with a competitive edge. And a whole world of possibilities.
