August 22, 2019 – Bedford, NS – Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency

Innovation is about new ideas and approaches that help grow our economy, create good jobs and improve the quality of life of all Canadians. That is why the Government of Canada is supporting Hanatech IoT Inc. to commercialize a new “Internet of Things (IoT)” software solution and scale their business to a larger market.

Hanatech specializes in IoT solutions, utilizing sensors and meters to collect and analyze data on a real-time basis. The data is then presented in its proprietary business intelligence platform at OneSmartView.com, helping businesses improve efficiency, profitability, and help resellers create new revenue streams. To begin its market expansion outside the Atlantic region, the company recently hired a Regional Manager for Ontario with related technology and market expertise.

Darrell Samson, Member of Parliament for Sackville – Preston – Chezzetcook, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), today announced Government of Canada support for this project.

Economic growth and the creation of good jobs for Atlantic Canadians require innovation and diversification. Support for this project is one way the Government of Canada is working to support businesses to scale-up, increase productivity and participate in the innovation economy. Projects like this also contribute to the Atlantic Growth Strategy outcome of long-term economic prosperity in the region.


“We are building on Atlantic Canada’s competitive advantages, such as its growing innovation ecosystem and its skilled workforce, by supporting small firms like Hanatech. They help drive business growth and create highly skilled jobs, making our communities, and our country, stronger.”

     - The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister         responsible for ACOA

“Hanatech is another great example of an innovative, specialized technology company growing and providing great jobs here in Nova Scotia. Our government is delighted to support this IoT firm to help it promote its new software solution and expand into new markets.”

     - Darrell Samson, Member of Parliament for Sackville – Preston – Chezzetcook 

“Hanatech is very pleased to receive ACOA’s support for our market expansion initiatives, enabling us to grow quickly and create jobs in the region. ACOA and the Government of Canada play an important role in helping companies like Hanatech reach critical mass and enhance prosperity in Atlantic Canada.”
