Dear Supercluster Members, Associates and Community,
The Digital Technology Supercluster is proud to support Canada’s Plan to Mobilize Industry to Fight COVID-19 through our COVID-19 Program.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
- The COVID-19 Program will invest up to $60 million in projects that will:
- support the health and safety of Canadians
- deliver solutions to issues created by the COVID-19 outbreak
- build expertise and capacity relevant to future health crises
- The Program is focused on delivering solutions to protect the health and safety of all Canadians while also supporting the economy through the creation, application and scaling of digital technologies in five areas of focus: the health system, community health, safe living, diagnostics, and therapeutics.
- We are accepting project proposals immediately and on a continuous basis. Our COVID-19 Program Guide is available on our website and further support resources will be made available on Monday.
