Canada’s Innovation Intermediaries

Canada’s 30 Technology Access Centres (TACs) are specialized applied research & development centres affiliated with publicly-funded colleges and Cégeps. Each TAC primarily serves a specific geographic area, with a focus on strengthening the industrial sector of significance to that region.

These demand-driven centres, from BC to PEI, help Canadian businesses – especially Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) – get their products, processes and services market-ready by conducting applied research and development projects focused on company problems…. Read more
