Western Innovation (WINN) Initiative

The Western Innovation (WINN) Initiative is a five-year federal initiative that offers repayable contributions for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with operations in Western Canada, in order to help move their new and innovative technologies from the later stages of research and development to the marketplace.

Applications are now being accepted until November 29, 2017.

Who can apply for WINN?

WINN is open to western Canadian SMEs with less than 500 employees, who have been in operation for at least one year.
