In Canada, The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, announced the Government of Canada is investing up to $950 million under the Innovation Superclusters Initiative.

The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development said, “Today we are investing in five superclusters so that tomorrow we will be more than 50,000 jobs richer and benefit from an even stronger economy – an innovation economy. With the Superclusters Initiative, we bet on Canadians. We looked at what we did well across our great nation, and we asked industry, academia, and NGOs how we could do it better. The response was impressive and the ideas were remarkable.”

Canada’s superclusters are: the Ocean Supercluster based in Atlantic Canada, the SCALE.AI Supercluster based in Quebec, the Advanced Manufacturing Supercluster based in Ontario, the Protein Industries Supercluster based in the Prairies and the Digital Technology Supercluster based in British Columbia.
