State of entrepreneurship in canadaPlease note that the permanent Build in Canada Program replaces the pilot Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program. For more information, you can visit the Build in Canada website.

Are you in the process of commercializing an innovative product or service? If so, you may be eligible to participate in the Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program. The program connects businesses with one of the largest buyers of goods and services in Canada: the federal government.

You may be eligible if your innovative technology has not yet been sold commercially and is in one of the following sectors:

  • Environment
  • Health
  • Safety and security
  • Enabling technologies

The program could help you:

  • Connect with federal departments who want to test innovations
  • Showcase your innovative technology at events across Canada
  • Get feedback on the use of your product or service in an operational setting before taking it to market
  • Secure contracts before your product or service enters the market

To learn more, visit the Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program website. You can also check out our section Selling to Governments.

You may also want to visit Public Works and Government Services Canada's Buy and Sell website to learn about doing business with the Government of Canada.


I am selling an innovative program plan to promote responsible, sustainable health within the young children population which have been diagnosed as learning disabled as well as sustainability with drug users. Using orthomolecular medicine (vitamins and minerals) as opposed to pharmaceutical drugs will deter these children from drug use in the future and save taxpayers millions of dollars in the long run
