Innovation, Science and Technology
Are you looking for assistance to connect with qualified international contacts for R&D partnering, commercialization or sourcing of technology? Would you like to know about funding opportunities? The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service is here to help you.
Through our worldwide presence, we can connect you to a global network of qualified contacts to: commercialize your Canadian Innovations abroad; source technology and talent; highlight financial support through various funding mechanisms; and facilitate R&D partnerships.
Canada is an innovative country - we have the ability to think outside the box and these qualities have put Canada on the map.
Canada is an ideal partner for international collaboration, for example:
- Canada generates about 4% of global knowledge, as measured by academic publications, a formidable statistic considering it composes only 1% of the global population.
- Canada has strong technology clusters across Canada ranging from hydrogen fuel cells in Vancouver to aerospace in Montreal.
- Canada has one of the most generous tax-based support programs in the industrialized world through the Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax credit.
