TargetGHG Collaborative Technology Development Program - SDTC & OCE

Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) and Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) partnered to create the $45 million TargetGHG Collaborative Technology Development Program, a government funding program aimed at supporting collaboration on the late-stage development and commercialization of greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction technologies. Small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) may lead a consortium involving large industrial emitters, academic institutions, and other SMEs to commercialize new technologies which have a strong potential to result in significant, verifiable, and sustainable GHG reductions.

  • Amount: Up to 50% of eligible project expenses. May increase to a maximum 67% contribution if lead applicant maintains <10 employees.
  • Timeline: Periodic calls for Expressions of Interest (EOI); currently closed with no future rounds identified.
  • Projects: 3 potential project types, including Industrial Point Source (sustainable manufacturing/production), Value Chain (reducing GHGs as products are processed), and Carbon Capture & Utilization (developing new innovative ways to use carbon dioxide).
  • Eligibility: Ontario businesses with <500 employees, <$50M in gross annual revenues, and either manufactures and/or performs research and development projects in Ontario.
