Innovative Solutions Canada is a new program with over $100 million dedicated to supporting the scale up and growth of Canada’s innovators and entrepreneurs by having the federal government act as a first customer. Twenty participating federal departments and agencies will set aside a portion of funding to support the creation of innovative solutions by Canadian small businesses.

Innovators who apply can have their proofs of concept funded up to $150K. And if the departments like what they see, they could receive up to $1M in funding to develop a prototype! Innovators keep the IP and departments get their hands on cutting-edge products/services.

Innovation Solutions Canada needs you, Canadian small businesses and innovators, to develop novel solutions to these challenges. Through our program, we're partnering with eligible Canadian small businesses and facilitating the early development, testing and validation of prototypes, as well as preparing a pathway to commercialization.

Join us for a lunch and learn on May 1st to learn all about this new federal program and the opportunities it might provide for your business. A buffet style lunch will be included in your price!
