    Accelerating Innovation

Technology Demonstration
Program (TDP)

We are pleased to announce that MDA Systems Ltd. is the first recipient under the TDP. A contribution of up to $54 million will support MDA Systems Ltd. and its collaborators to develop next generation radar, communication and optical missions. (MDA Announcement)

ITO is accepting Statements of Interest for the next round of TDP from July 11, 2016 to October 11, 2016 at midnight (PST). Please note that all of the TDP guides have been revised to reflect the program's updated Terms and Conditions.

The Technology Demonstration Program (TDP) was launched in 2013. It provides non-repayable contributions to support one or more large scale projects per year. Projects supported by the program are expected to ensure a concentration of technology development in priority areas with significant potential for broad-based and long-term economic benefits. As well, projects funded through this program are expected to be the basis for the next generation of manufacturing, technical capabilities and services in Canada, and to generate material economic benefits for Canada in the longer term.

Strategic Aerospace and
Defence Initiative (SADI)

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)

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.
