R&D Funding Program

CUTRIC Funded 12 R&D projects at a contribution of $7.5 Million. These projects are adding significant value to the economic development and research capacity in Ontario. Over 100 jobs were created because of these projects. All of the funds from the R&D funding program have been allocated, but we are open to receiving new project ideas for future funding rounds.


At the AGM, the Audited Financial Statements were approved, as well as, the appointment of Bass & Murphy, CPA, LLP as CUTRIC’s Auditor for the fiscal year 2019-2020, and authorizing the Board of Directors to fix numeration.
