DAIR Cloud Program

CANARIE’s Digital Accelerator for Innovation and Research (DAIR) program offers cloud-based resources to Canadian start-ups as they develop and test their products in preparation for market launch.  For Canadian entrepreneurs and small businesses, the scalability and agility of cloud technology drastically reduces the time and cost of product development and testing. The cloud is upending traditional business models and giving Canadians the opportunity to get there first in the global economy.

More than 900 Canadian companies use DAIR to gain that critical first-mover advantage. Learn more about CANARIE’s DAIR Program.
