About CATAAlliance

The Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance advocates on behalf of Canadian HQ tech companies for a sustainable, fair, inclusive and competitive environment for innovation to thrive.

The Alliance brings together industry thought leaders with academe and policy makers to advocate for Canadian competitiveness. We’re amplifying a bold, confident podium culture amongst Canadian innovators.

CATA is home to the National Innovation Leadership Council, a joint body with the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) – the CACP/CATA E-Crimes Cyber Council, and is launching a Reimagining the Canadian Dream Crowd Sourcing program this Fall. Call for applications open now.
