Did you know?

The Clean Growth Hub plays an important role behind the scenes to ensure all possible options are explored to help good clean technology projects find funding. As you might anticipate, the response to federal clean technology programs has been substantial; many programs have received more applications than can be funded. Given the Government's strong commitment to clean growth, the Hub plays a coordinating role between programs to optimize federal clean technology outcomes. If a project with technical merit was not successful in the original program to which it applied, the Hub will contact partners to determine if it might be eligible for funding under another federal program.

Company spotlight

Fortress Xylitol and General Fusion are among hundreds of firms with which the Clean Growth Hub has cooperated to advance clean technology projects in Canada.
