Develop Innovative Ideas

You supply the imagination and discipline and ACOA and its partners can help bring your ideas to fruition.

The Atlantic Innovation Fund provides financing for R&D projects in the area of natural and applied sciences, as well as in social sciences, humanities, arts and culture. In order to qualify for funding, these projects need to be linked to the development and commercialization of technology-based products, processes or services.

The Business Development Program can provide unsecured, interest-free loans to help you research and develop new or improved products or services. Most businesses are eligible, except retail/wholesale, real estate and government services.
