Canada’s Digital Technology Supercluster
First Projects Funded, Cycle Two Underway
In March 2019, we were very pleased to announce funding for the Digital Technology Supercluster’s first seven Technology Leadership Program projects. A total of $40 million is being invested over a three-year period in seven projects, which are driving innovation in forestry, manufacturing, earth observation and precision health. The Supercluster is providing $15 million of co-investment into these projects. More information on these first projects can be found here.
We’ve also launched the second round of Technology Leadership Program investments (“Cycle 2”), and the Capacity Building Pilot Program. The Capacity Building Pilot Program aims to develop a diverse pool of digital talent to ensure our workforce is prepared for the jobs of tomorrow, with a focus on improving the inclusion and participation of Indigenous peoples, women and other underrepresented groups. More information on our Technology Leadership and Capacity Building programs is available here.
