Digital Technology Supercluster will help solve pressing challenges in health care, natural resources and the industrial sector
“The Digital Technology Supercluster is kicking into high gear, launching seven inaugural projects that will unlock the potential of data to push Canadian businesses over the top, preserve our forests, and even save Canadian lives. These seven projects are a big step forward in advancing data and digital technologies, with positive impacts reverberating across our country, including the creation of good middle-class jobs.”
– The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development
“We are thrilled to celebrate the launch of our first cohort of seven technology leadership projects. We are proud to be delivering on the promise of the Innovation Superclusters Initiative so early in our mandate. The investments between the supercluster and our project partners will propel Canada forward as a digital innovation leader, drive increased economic growth, and create jobs across the province and country.”
–Sue Paish, CEO, Digital Technology Supercluster
A Government of Canada investment of up to $15 million in this first batch of projects under the Digital Technology Supercluster has helped leverage more than $25 million in contributions from industry, research and academic partners.
The Digital Technology Supercluster will create more than 13,500 jobs and add more than $5 billion to Canada’s economy over 10 years.
