Technozone Exhibitions on Display at Library and Archives Canada: Highlighting Current Canadian Innovations

OTTAWA - The Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) and the Canada Science and Technology Museum (CSTM) have joined together to create two Technozone exhibitions to highlight current Canadian innovations.

“One of the most important goals at the Museums is to spark new ideas and foster dreams in our young visitors,” said Alex Benay, President and CEO of the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation. “By creating these Technozones with BCIP, we hope to further inspire the next generation to help transform the world — like the remarkable Canadian innovators who have done so before them.”

In order to help businesses move innovative products and services from the lab to the marketplace, the Government of Canada provides opportunities to transform a good idea into a marketable product through BCIP.

Two of these products are explained in Technozone exhibitions: Harvesting Sunlight in collaboration with SunCentral in Richmond, BC, and Underwater Imaging in collaboration with 2G Robotics in Waterloo, ON.

Learn more about two of these Canadian success stories on display at Library and Archives Canada until September 15, 2015.

The work of our organization is made possible in part through financial support of the Government of Canada.
