ReMAP Backgrounder


ReMAP provides a funding opportunity open to the entire Canadian manufacturing community. The 2016 Call for Proposals seeks out industry leaders in Canada to work in collaboration with research partners to develop later-stage innovation projects. New projects will enhance Canada’s competitive advantage, create new highly-skilled jobs, and develop export-ready products that will yield long-term economic benefit.

Projects jointly funded under the ReMAP program must demonstrate the ability to advance innovations into commercial products by 2019.

New ideas are sought for:

  • Electronification (New Materials, Photonics, RF, Packaging)

  • Renewable Energy (Generation, Conversion, Storage)

  • Industrie 4.0 (IoT, M2M, Robotics, Automation Platforms)

Qualified projects will meet the following criteria:

  • Existence of a working prototype: Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6+

  • Benefit to Canada: increase HQP jobs, export revenues, and new products

  • Industry funding: matching cash/in-kind contributions ($25,000+ per year)
