With the implementation of the Ontario Cap & Trade Program, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are a popular topic in Ontario. As the province switches to a cleaner electrical grid, the cost to provide electricity goes up; this can influence the profitability of heavy energy users. However, many companies are considering
TargetGHG Collaborative Technology Development Program grants support the development of innovative products and processes that lead towards a significant reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Through the program, Ontario-based businesses may receive government funding to enter into a clean technology (cleantech) partnership with at least at least one other R&D
Canada’s transportation sector has a significant impact on climate change. In fact, reports suggest that transportation currently accounts for 1/4 of all Canadian greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Because of this, the Government of Canada has accelerated the development of electric vehicle (EV) charging station network, spanning from coast-to-coast. The network
The TargetGHG Collaborative Technology Development Program is a $45 million research and development fund aimed at supporting clean technology (cleantech) commercialization partnerships. Innovations created through the collaboration should specifically seek to reduce the greenhouse gasses released by Canada’s heaviest emitters.
Ontario technology developers who enter a partnership with at least one
Every day, Canadian hospitals create environmental and health and safety hazards by expelling destructive greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere. Surgical operations requiring the use of halogenated anaesthetic drugs release alarmingly high amounts of carbon dioxide emissions. With approximately 54,000 operating facilities in Canada, GHGs produced could soon exceed amounts
Please Note: The CME SMART Green program is now closed. Please explore active government funding programs.
The CME SMART Green Program assists Ontario-based manufacturers to adopt innovative technologies that increase productivity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). Manufacturers may apply for up to 50% of project expenses to a maximum $200,000
The Province of Ontario is positioning itself to be a leader in the development of clean technologies, commonly referred to as “cleantech”. Funds generated from the Ontario provincial cap and trade program will be reinvested into ‘green economy’ businesses, or those exploring new ways to reduce carbon emissions. This is
