Program

Build in Canada Innovation Program

Description

The Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) supports projects undertaken by companies, or university researchers, to bring their innovation to market and to solve government challenges, in a range of disciplines.

About the Program

The program helps innovators:

  • land a first major reference sale,
  • sell their innovation, but keep the intellectual property,
  • get their innovation tested in a real-life setting and
  • gain feedback to help get products to market faster

The program pays up to $500,000 for non-military innovations and up to $1,000,000 for military innovations.

The BCIP targets innovations in 10 priority areas.

Options for Innovators to Submit Proposals

There are two calls under the Build in Canada program through which innovators can submit their innovation to government:

  • Call for proposals 007

Innovators can submit their proposals to the program when their innovation is at the right Technology Readiness Level (TRL).

Under call for proposals 007, innovations are evaluated on the merit of being innovative. Once pre-qualified, the program finds a testing partner. This call is open to submissions with no specific government challenge in mind.

Learn how to submit to the open call for proposals

  • The challenge call for proposals pilot

Under the challenge call for proposals pilot, innovators submit proposals to address specific challenges issued by federal departments.

Innovations must also be at the right TRL. In the challenge call for proposals pilot, submissions are evaluated on the merit of being able to address challenges, and on the merit of being innovative.
