Since 2010, the Innovative Solutions Canada program has helped an incredible number of small and medium enterprises (SME) get their innovations to market, helping Canadian businesses grow and create high-value jobs. Here are some examples of Canadian Innovators and their products who benefitted from a little push from the program.
Smiling through a pandemic – InnovaTools
When Canada sought the help of domestic manufacturers to produce personal protective equipment (PPE), InnovaTools ventured outside of their industry to develop the Clear Transparent Barrier Mask. This reusable face shield is see-through and enables more effective disinfecting practices than surgical or cloth masks.
Revolutionizing the world of driving – CEMWorks
Connected vehicles are on their way to Canadian cities, and they will transform how people move around. When Winnipeg-based CEMWork came across the Connected Vehicle and Engineered Surfaces challenge they saw a perfect opportunity to put their expertise to the test!
COVID-19 : Let There be Light – Lind Equipment
Lind's Apollo UVC LED Light was originally created to decontaminate and reuse personal protective equipment (PPE) while Canada experienced a shortage in the early stages of the pandemic. As the PPE shortage was resolving, the need for decontamination remained. It was through ISC funding that Lind could deploy and test the effectiveness of their innovation in other settings.
