Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) is strengthening Canada’s innovation ecosystem by delivering critical funds to Canadian companies developing sustainable technologies.

Seed funding provides early-stage company founders with a one-time grant of $50,000 to $100,000 to validate an idea. Companies must be nominated by one of SDTC’s accelerator partners and have raised at least $100,000 from accredited investors.

Please visit the Seed Funding Application Guide for more information, or email us at

Start-up funding is a non-dilutive grant paid out over five years based on performance. Companies apply to SDTC directly and must have a well-defined project, a line of sight to financing, be engaged in discussions with potential customers, and be working with customers to test the viability of their business models.

Scale-up funding targets advanced, high-growth companies with records of success that are looking to grow, strengthen their competitive advantage or unlock a larger customer base.
