Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP)
Does your business have a new, innovative technology or service?
The BCIP helps Canadian companies of all sizes move their state-of-the-art goods and services from the laboratory to the marketplace.
Through BCIP, the Government of Canada buys pre-qualified goods and services. The government moves late-stage research and development innovations to federal departments for testing. After testing, BCIP provides feedback to suppliers on the performance of their products or services.
