Ahead of the curve starts here
Leading the world in digital solutions for some of our generation’s most pressing opportunities and imperatives starts here. It starts with Canadian organizations working together to build a sustainable, healthier, and inclusive global economy and society with Canadian-made digital technologies. Impossible? Not at all. For the past four years, Members of the Digital Supercluster have been doing just that.
As part of Canada’s Global Innovation Clusters, formerly the Superclusters, the Digital Supercluster helps Canadian organizations—big and small—develop, scale and unleash digital technology breakthroughs, creating a myriad of opportunities for Canadians and growth for Canadian companies. We bring together businesses, academia, community and government agencies to solve some of industry and society’s biggest challenges and capture opportunities together, better and faster than any single organization can achieve on its own. By curating collaborations between organizations across the country, we create the best ecosystem for innovation. Together, we are supporting the commitments to net zero, securing food supply chains, building a healthier Canada and creating the skilled workforce Canada needs to increase productivity and fill the jobs of today and tomorrow.
As of March 31, 2022, we have invested in over 80 collaborative innovation projects including 34 projects specifically focused on addressing COVID-19. With a portfolio valued at over $348 million, our Members are developing over 300 IP assets and supporting 6,500 skilling and development opportunities for Canadians.
As we enter a COVID endemic world, face the imperative of an escalating climate crisis and see geopolitical relationships challenged more than ever before, at the Digital Supercluster we have opened windows that re-define Canada’s course and momentum for prosperity and global leadership. In 2018 we started to lay the foundation for Canadian industry, academia, and governments to work together to develop meaningful, digital solutions to emerging and nascent challenges. The hard work, vision and commitment of Canadian organizations has paid off and now in our fourth year, we see Canadian digital solutions and Canadian organizations on the world stage and recognized as global leaders in building a ‘better world’.

We are grateful for the tenacity and creativity of our Members, the leadership and support from our Government partners, and, the commitment of our Board and our team. We will continue to be ahead of the curve as we grow Canadian companies and build a better Canada. For everyone.
Message from the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry
Investment in innovation is fundamental to growing Canada’s economy and maintaining our position as a global innovation leader.
The Global Innovation Clusters, known as the Superclusters during the period of this report, bring together businesses, academia, not-for-profit organizations, and governments to advance innovation at the speed of business. The clusters focus on highly innovative Canadian industries, including plant-based protein agri-food; advanced manufacturing; ocean-based industries; artificial intelligence; and digital technologies.
From the beginning, our government’s investment in the clusters has been about finding new and innovative ways to build connections. By incentivizing collaboration and growing strong Canadian ecosystems, the Global Innovation Clusters are generating good, well-paying jobs across the country, developing a highly skilled and diverse workforce, and contributing to our economic recovery by creating stronger and more resilient economic growth.
And the numbers speak for themselves. As of March 31, the clusters have approved more than 490 projects worth over $2.1 billion and involving over 2,100 partners. This includes more than 80 COVID-19 response projects with a total investment of over $225 million.
Our government will continue to build on the success of this collaborative model. Budget 2022 is proposing an additional $750 million investment over the next six years to further support the growth and development of the clusters. We look forward to seeing the clusters grow their impact, including in key priority areas such as fighting climate change and improving supply chain resiliency.
Over the past four years, the clusters have supported innovators, researchers, and entrepreneurs to grow bold ideas into global opportunities through better access to experience and expertise, in turn advancing Canada’s edge internationally. I am proud to see that each cluster is propelling innovation beyond our borders into the global market.
The Digital Technology Supercluster in particular is positioning Canada’s leadership in the new digital economy through collaboration to develop new and innovative technologies. Over this past year, they have led many cutting-edge projects, including Compass, which harnesses AI technology to connect Canadians with the health and social services they need, and the Standard Data Platform for Autonomous Agriculture, which will help farmers be more efficient, increase their output, lower their costs, and have a positive impact on the environment.
Thank you to everyone involved with the Digital Technology Supercluster for your perseverance during the challenges we have faced over the past year and for your commitment to strengthening our innovation ecosystems and helping to establish a diverse and skilled workforce ready for the jobs of the future.
Innovation for a stronger Canada
Innovation is key to Canada’s growth, prosperity and wellbeing. When you solve big problems, you grow people, companies and communities. This translates into improved living standards for all Canadians.
At the Digital Supercluster, we proudly invest in innovation and skilling systems that make Canadian lives better. In the past four years, we built our community to 1,000+ Canadian organizations and grew our innovation investment portfolio to $348M—with $191M coming from industry and other partners. Currently, there are 150+ world-class products being fast-tracked from development to commercialization, helping to position Canada ahead of the curve in the global innovation race. These include the world’s first open data ecosystem in microbiome-based resource exploration, extraction and waste remediation and a platform and ecosystem to digitize paper-based records and support more effective and safe aircraft maintenance and inspection.
Thanks to the creativity and commitment of our Members, we successfully pivoted to solving big problems as we see COVID-19 continue to evolve and impact every element of our economy. We are securing food supply chains through AI-powered planning; lowering the environmental footprint of mining with visibility into critical mineral deposits a kilometre into the earth; and saving lives using secure global networks to share critical data about COVID and Antimicrobial Resistance.
The strong connection between innovation and Canada’s economic prosperity has fueled a whole new level of momentum for the Digital Supercluster. And we are ready. Our proven success was recognized by the Government of Canada in Budget 2022, with the commitment of a further $750M in investment for the re-named “Global Innovation Clusters”. Thanks to the dedication of our Members, Government Partners, Digital Supercluster Staff and Board of Directors, we will continue creating meaningful impacts in the next year, five years and 50 years to come.
Leveraging Canada’s people, trust and ambition to accelerate growth, prosperity and wellbeing
At the Digital Supercluster, we leverage Canada’s strengths in people, trust and ambition to advance innovation that drives economic growth, prosperity and wellbeing.
We started this journey in 2018 to grow Canadian companies by solving some of industry and society’s biggest challenges with Canadian-made digital innovations. We believed that Canadian industry could deliver world-leading digital solutions and be recognized on the world stage, and that we could do this while creating digital skilling opportunities for some of Canada’s most vulnerable populations. With a committed community of Canadian companies, academia, government partners and community leaders we thought we could do all this. And we were right.
In 2021-22, the Digital Supercluster increased the competitiveness and attractiveness of Canadian industry leaders such as DNAstack, named as one of the World Economic Forum’s 2022 Technology Pioneers. We accelerated the growth of Canada’s most promising scale-ups and start-ups such as Verge Ag, who has expanded sales efforts across four continents. We integrated research from Canada’s academic institutions such as the University of British Columbia, teaming deep expertise and talent in areas including blockchain, clinical evaluations and mining, with leading industry organizations. We made Canada a global innovation player and investment destination.
Looking ahead—together with our Members, we will continue supporting the creation of bold digital solutions to capture opportunities for Canadian organizations to lead the world. Our industry led collaborative projects will deliver digital solutions to challenges in climate change, productivity improvements, supply chains, talent and health—and will develop solutions better together than any single organization can do on its own.
Thank you to our Members for your continued innovative spirit and drive, to our Board and Supercluster team for your tenacity and vision and to the Government of Canada for fueling continued success through the Global Innovation Clusters program with an additional $750M investment. Most importantly, thank you to the thousands of Canadians who see the potential for Canada to lead and who embrace every day the opportunity and the challenges that the digital world brings. Together we are indeed building a better Canada.

Several Members continue their collaborations outside of the Digital Supercluster frame, including Thrive and Providence Health Care.
International market expansion activities are also on the rise in countries such as Australia, Brazil, United Kingdom, United States, European Union, United Arab Emirates and Japan. This includes EarthDaily Analytics and Verge Ag driving initiatives to help farmers in Ukraine; LlamaZOO opening an office in Dubai (UAE); Firstline expanding to Italy and Switzerland; and Swift Medical adding clinical partners in the United Kingdom and Belgium.
In 2021-22, Digital Supercluster Members gained notable recognition on the world stage for technology innovation. Firstline is working with the World Health Organization to accelerate the global distribution of rapidly changing Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) treatment guidelines and save lives. DNAstack was also recognized as a Technology Pioneer 2022 by the World Economic Health Forum and will be working with the international community to support low- and middle- income countries. Curatio, in partnership with OPTT, is one of 14 winners selected in the World Economic Forum’s Youth Mental Health Challenge.
“Connections and partnerships made through the Digital Supercluster have contributed to AlayaCare’s double digit growth and accelerated expansion of our AI-powered home healthcare platform. Investing in the rapid development of additional functionality such as screener forms and contact tracing, more than 250 home and community care agencies across Canada were able to limit the spread of COVID-19 between employees and patients at the height of the pandemic, while significantly lowering the costs for healthcare providers. Fast forward a year, and we are now facilitating over a billion total patient visits around the world, with our US operations growing by seven times over the last two years as the increase in demand for home healthcare continues to rise.”
Growing our innovation community
- Recruit and retain an engaged member base (completed)
- Foster meaningful engagement with stakeholders (completed)
- Support organizations that can scale and build pathways to export and international success (completed)
The Digital Supercluster passed the milestone of 1,000+ Members in 2021-22, with close to half of the new organizations joining from outside of British Columbia. We retained 98% of our Members and Associates with currently a third participating in projects.
The Digital Supercluster maximized member engagement through ideation workshops focused on Digital Marine, Digital Health and Getting to Net Zero. Throughout the year we worked with Members to amplify their accomplishments to our 7,000+ followers on social media and 3,700+ newsletter subscribers, and proudly showcased their innovations at industry and community engagements, bi-monthly “demo days”, and events including the 21st Annual Healthcare Summit, Cascadia Innovation Corridor, Globe Forum 2022, BC Natural Resources Forum, Public Policy Forum’s Canada Growth Summit 2022, Eureka, and the CityAge Date Effect: Canada’s Digital Imperative.
On the international stage we were present as well with participation in Global Innovation Summit, Inventure$, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Conference, 5th Annual CIPO & CIGI IP and Data Research Conference and the NASCOMM Design & Engineering Summit.
Delivering our programs
- Work with project teams to deliver on project outcomes (completed)
- Support consortiums in realizing the full potential of their IP and data assets (completed)
- Invest in new systems to streamline and scale program operations (partially completed)
In 2021-22, the Digital Supercluster completed 34 projects and contracted an additional nine technology leadership and 11 capacity building projects, valued at $40M. The Cycle 4 call for technology projects resulted in $30M invested across eight new projects, leveraging nearly $50M of industry co-investment. Our second call for Talent + Capacity Building projects committed $10M and leveraged nearly $40M of partner investments.
The Digital Supercluster operationalizes the objectives of the Government of Canada’s IP Strategy, providing a framework that allows collaborating partners to successfully commercialize IP. As of March 2022, there are 290 IP assets created across our investment portfolio, with another 335 in development. Monthly educational webinars featuring various IP experts drew over 400 organizations. In addition to IP workshops and thought leadership sessions, we provided IP support on a project-specific basis to all Members participating in the development of projects, including advice in relation to IP and data—roughly 2,200 touchpoints in 2021-22.
"Historically, IP considerations were not at the forefront in our business consciousness. The Digital Supercluster model has compelled us to take a fresh approach. Without the influence of the Digital Supercluster in facilitating Firstline’s articulation of the IP generated and tie-in to our IP portfolio, we likely would have produced the same novel technology, but not sought to register or protect it. Consequently, in future all our technology will be evaluated through an IP lens."
Strengthening our ecosystem
- Support the scale-up of SMEs (completed)
- Develop international pathways for project outcomes (completed)
- Further our efforts in equity, diversity and inclusion (completed)
The Digital Supercluster is helping Canadian scale-ups and anchor companies achieve higher growth and more international exposure, with 70% of investment allocated to start-ups and scale-ups. On average there are three SMEs per project, with 186 different start-ups and scale-ups actively involved. Over 45% of our participating Members are active in international markets such as the USA, United Kingdom, Europe and Asia, including Firstline, DNAstack, Verge Ag and EarthDaily Analytics. With the launch of the Digital Learning Lab, the Digital Supercluster delivers on Canada’s commitments to build skilling and job opportunities that advance equity, diversity and inclusion, with over half of the 6,500+ workforce placements being developed going to under-represented groups.
“EarthDaily Analytics has been able to market and sell the technology developed through its Digital Supercluster projects. In addition to agricultural applications there are other urgent climate-based concerns like forest fires that can benefit from large-scale images. The Supercluster investment not only enabled us to advance our technology but played a key role in opening our collaborative network and connecting us with end-users.”
Securing investment for Canadian innovation
- Secure new investment with the Government of Canada (completed)
In Budget 2021, the Government of Canada invested an additional $60M over two years to the Innovation Superclusters Initiative (ISI) program. The Digital Supercluster received $20M of this new investment, some of which was to recognize the fast and impactful investments made to support Canada’s COVID-19 response.
In Budget 2022 the continued success of the program was acknowledged by the Government of Canada with the commitment of $750M over six years to support the further growth and development of (newly named) “Global Innovation Clusters”. These clusters will expand their national presence and will collaborate to deepen their impact, including through joint missions aligned with key government priorities, such as fighting climate change and addressing supply chain disruptions. To maximize the impact of this funding and to ensure it corresponds with industry and government needs, it will be allocated between the five clusters on a competitive basis.
Clear priorities for 2022-23 are to drive successful outcomes for Digital Supercluster Members through the delivery of goals from active projects. This in turn paves the path to a strong, growing and resilient Canada by developing Canadian value chains to boost productivity and compete in international markets, securing food supply chains, fighting climate change, keeping Canadians healthy and investing in the skills that Canadian workers need to fill the good-paying jobs of today and tomorrow.READ THE 2022-23 CORPORATE PLAN
