By Renée Francoeur
March 17, 2016 – Canada’s minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, Navdeep Bains, recently announced over $206 million in funding for 36 clean technology projects across the country, as an investment in Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC).
Bains made the announcement earlier this month, during his speech to the Alberta Enterprise Group.
“Canadians understand that a healthy environment and a strong economy are not competing priorities. Now is the time for Canadian companies to capture their share of the global market for clean technology. From waste management to biofuels to greener solutions for the oil and gas industry, these Canadian companies are leading the world in intelligent, environmentally responsible and economically sound solutions in a number of key economic sectors”, Bains said.
Since its inception, SDTC has grown Canada’s clean technology industry by funding more than 300 projects, resulting in the creation of 8200 jobs for Canadians, added Leah Lawrence, president and CEO of SDTC.
