Call For Project Proposals

Targeted investment call for Technology Leadership Program - Cycle 5

Together, we are capable of so much more.

Announcing a targeted investment call for projects in our Technology Leadership Program (Cycle 5), opening October 12, 2021.

For this investment cycle, we will co-invest $20M alongside industry in 4-6 bold and ambitious projects, resulting in more than $50M of new investment in Canadian digital technology innovation.

Please note that this is NOT an open call for project proposals.

This is a targeted opportunity and participation is by-invitation only. We will be considering proposals that build off the success of our previous project investments, and from teams that we have already been actively working with as they develop their technology innovation project concepts.


An update on Cycle 5.

As of May 17, 2022, we expect 4 more proposals to be submitted over the next few weeks, and will be making our investment decisions before the end of June.

To date, the Digital Supercluster has co-invested $12M with an additional $17M coming from industry, for a total of $29M committed.

As a reminder, this investment cycle will have $20M co-invested by us alongside industry and others, resulting in more than $50M of new investment in Canadian digital technology innovation. Proposals will be evaluated by the Project Selection Committee.
