Announced in the 2010 Budget, the Canadian Innovation Commercialization
Program (CICP) is a $40 million program that aims to promote innovation
and support the development of Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) in
Canada. This pilot program provides funding for purchasing and testing of
pre-commercialized innovative goods and services by Government of Canada
departments.

The purpose of the Innovation Information Forum is to provide an overview of
the Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program (CICP) and other similar
programs, including the National Research Council’s Industrial Research
Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP), Natural Sciences and Engineering Research
Council of Canada’s (NSERC) Engage and Interaction Grants, and the Canada
Revenue Agency’s (CRA) Scientific Research & Experimental Development
(SR&ED) Tax Incentive Program.
