The supercluster initiative is more than just investing money; it is about doing business differently - about leveraging strengths to drive innovation, overcome barriers and explore new opportunities. By creating more value-added processing opportunities in Canada, we will generate new companies, products, processes, services, and jobs.
Working together, we will build a shared competitive advantage for Canada.
