What We Do

We collaborate with Canada’s research and education community, private sector, and government partners to ensure that Canada’s bright researchers, students, faculty, and entrepreneurs benefit from the technologies and tools that are critical to their success. With our partners across the country, we work to ensure that Canada leads in research and innovation.
