How we can help

We understand that finding support for your clean tech project can be a challenge and we're here to help. Our advisors from departments and agencies across the federal government connect Canadian clean tech innovators, developers and adopters with government funding and services to advance program-ready clean tech projects and initiatives.

Please note that the Hub is not a funding program and does not influence final program decisions.


Who can benefit from this service?

Organizations that will benefit from the Hub's advisory services are those that are program-ready. Program-ready means that you:

  • have a clean tech project where the technology is at TRL 3+ (past the idea stage);
  • have a project with a defined timeline that will result in the creation of a unique product or service offering;
  • own the intellectual property (IP) or have an IP strategy (when developing tech);
  • have a business plan; and
  • need help identifying federal programs and services to fill a partial funding gap to advance your clean tech project.

Not quite program-ready?

Don't worry! There are other advisory services and supports that can help.
