We’re taking risks to solve challenges. Are you ready?
The Government of Canada is looking for innovators to solve challenges. As the single largest purchaser of Canadian goods and services, the Government of Canada has a unique opportunity to support the growth of Canadian innovators and entrepreneurs.
We need you, Canadian small businesses and innovators, to develop novel solutions to these challenges. Through the Innovative Solutions Canada program, we’re partnering with eligible Canadian small businesses and facilitating the early development, testing and validation of prototypes, as well as preparing a pathway to commercialization.
- If your idea is selected, you could receive up to $150,000 in support to develop a proof of concept.
- If your proof of concept is approved, you could receive up to $1 million in support to develop a prototype.
- If the developed innovation solves the Government of Canada’s challenge, we could be your first buyer.

About Innovative Solutions Canada
InnovativeSolutions Canada (ISC) is a Government of Canada program aimed squarely at innovators.
Through this small business innovation program, 20 federal departments must spend a combined $100M by launching challenges for Canadian SMEs to solve. Innovators who apply can have their proofs of concept funded up to $150K. And if the departments like what they see, they could receive up to $1M in funding to develop a prototype! Innovators keep the IP and departments get their hands on cutting-edge products/services.
