The team at the Consulate General of Canada in Boston is one of 161 offices of the Trade Commissioner Service (TCS), part of the Government of Canada. Trade Commissioners provide Canadian business and innovation clients with practical advice, on-the-ground intelligence, and connections to help them achieve their global goals. Our priorities align with what New England has to offer and where Canada has strengths: life sciences, IT (AI, cleantech, digital health), agriculture (including food tech), sports tech, consumer and retail, aerospace and defense, robotics, and ocean technologies.
If you are a New England based business and/or innovator, our team would be pleased to assist you with identifying potential partners, information on investing in Canada, facilitating R&D collaboration and technology transfer, or supporting venture capital linkages.
Whether you’re an American firm interested in investing in Canada, or a Canadian firm seeking new partnerships or exploring new markets, the TCS is here to help.
Canada is committed to transitioning to a low-emission economy by collaborating with stakeholders and jurisdictions across the country and around the world to bring innovative and competitive clean technology to market. Canada’s low R&D costs, highly skilled talent, wealth of natural resources, and support for innovation make it attractive for clean technology development and commercialization.
Canada’s commitment to renewable energy is clear: the country gets 67 percent of its electricity and 17.3 percent of its energy from renewable sources—a stark contrast to the world’s 13.6 percent average. Canada is also the world’s second largest producer of hydroelectricity.
Canada ranks #1 in the G20 Global Cleantech Innovation Index and #4 globally. Canada is home to 12 companies in the Global Cleantech 100 and supports over 317K jobs in the cleantech sector.
Programs like the Clean Growth Hub, a whole-of-government focal point for clean technology focused on supporting companies and projects across Canada, support Canadian initiatives to make cleantech a priority sector.
