Global Hypergrowth. Anchored in Canada.

When innovative Canadian firms act as anchors in their communities, they foster entrepreneurship, build networks, create jobs and are catalysts to economic development. That’s why the Government of Canada has launched the Global Hypergrowth Project (GHP), a new scale-up service that will help companies rooted in Canada go further, faster. This project brings together the combined strength of its government partners to help tailor support to each participating company's specific needs, offering solutions that are as unique as the companies themselves.

Selection Panel

The Selection Panel worked together, under the purview of the Deputy Minister, to review prospective GHP companies against a set of comprehensive market-driven criteria. Upon completion of review, the Selection Panel submitted a list of recommended firms to the Deputy Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development for a final decision.

Canada wins when cutting-edge companies keep operations, profits and jobs, here at home. And when they scale up around the world, they signal that Canada is open for business. With the Global Hypergrowth Project, we're doubling down on Canada's most promising firms, to help them scale up, from here.
