Investments in clean new market technologies are part of the Government’s Innovation and Skills Plan.
Canada is number one in the G20 for clean technology innovation. In January 2019 and again in January 2020, 12 Canadian companies were recognized on the Global Cleantech 100 List. Ten of these were funded by SDTC.
The clean technology market is set to exceed $2.5 trillion by 2022.
Clean technology companies currently employ more than 195,000 Canadians in well-paying jobs that help reduce Canada’s environmental impacts and meet its climate change goals.
As Canada’s largest funder of cleantech entrepreneurs, SDTC took decisive action to support Canadian small businesses navigating this unprecedented economic reality during the pandemic crisis.
SDTC is an arm’s-length foundation created by the Government of Canada to support Canadian companies with the potential to become leaders as they develop and demonstrate new technologies to address some of our most pressing environmental challenges.
Clean technology companies can get advice from a team of experts from across government through the Clean Growth Hub. The Hub provides a single, easy point of contact for connecting with clean technology programs and services.
