Ontario Centres of Excellence: Covid-19 Collaboration Platform


Ontario Centres of Excellence


Covid-19 Collaboration Platform


During this unprecedented and fast-changing global situation, one thing is clear: we are all in this together. Now is time for Ontario innovators to come together as we respond to support this collective effort, both locally and globally.

OCE is identifying the innovative technologies, SMEs and experts from across the province to help fill the current product and service gaps related to COVID-19. If you have a piece of the puzzle – whether it is an asset, a technology, a product, or are a subject-matter expert – and are looking for collaborators to assist your efforts, we want to hear from you.

Through our extensive network of businesses, subject-matter experts and Business Development managers, we are helping Ontario innovators to make the connections necessary to accelerate their products and services to market. Once we collect this information, we will endeavor to match solution seekers with solution providers.

Some of the pieces of this puzzle include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Advanced Materials
  • Production and Cleanroom
  • AI/Data Solutions
  • Ventilators
  • Protective gear
  • Vaccine/medicine/virus detection/sensors
  • Sterilization/clean room
  • Quality control, certification, regulatory, labeling/marking/packaging
  • Logistics, remote healthcare, tools, services
  • 3D printing
  • Clean room capability
  • Sterilization capability
  • Plastic processing
  • Metal processing
  • Electronic assembly
  • General fabrication, assembly and packaging
