- What's New
On March 21, 2013 the Economic Action Plan 2013 announced the government's intention to create a Technology Demonstration Program, fulfilling a key recommendation of Beyond the Horizon: Canada's Interests and Future in Aerospace, led by Mr. Emerson. In September 2013, Industry Canada launched the Technology Demonstration Program to support large-scale collaborative research and development projects in areas with significant potential for economic benefit for Canada.
The Strategic Aerospace and Defence Initiative (SADI) program was launched in 2007. It provides repayable contributions to support innovative projects by aerospace, space, defence and security companies. The SADI program encourages research and development leading to new or improved products, services and processes, contributes to enhancing the competitiveness of Canadian companies in the aerospace and defence sector, and fosters collaboration between research institutes and the private sector.
Technology Partnerships Canada (TPC) was a special operating agency of Industry Canada with a mandate to provide funding for strategic research and development (R&D) projects that produced economic, social and environmental benefits to Canadians.
The TPC program was geared to pre-competitive projects across a wide spectrum of technological development, including environmental technologies, life sciences, information and communications technologies and advanced manufacturing.
