Is your project eligible for funding? Take our quiz and find out now.

To help you determine if your project is eligible to receive funding from SDTC's SD Tech Fund, we've developed a short questionnaire for you to answer.

Take a few minutes to complete the self-assessment form; if you answer in the affirmative to most of the questions below, we invite you to call an SDTC Applications & Intake Coordinator (613 234 6313) to start the application process





  1. Do you represent a Canadian company or are you willing and able to form a Canadian company?

  1. Are you developing an innovative technology (vs. being a technology adopter)?

  1. Is your technology beyond proof of concept but pre-commercial?


  1. Once commercialized, and relative to the incumbent technology, will your proposed  technology reduce GHG emissions, water consumption, or contaminants to air, soil or water?

  1. Are there risks in the development of your technology? ( i.e. are there technological obstacles that could prevent this technology from going to market?)


  1. Do you have proprietary rights to the technology?



  1. Could you form a project consortium with at least one other partner?  Preference is given to partners that are either end users or capable of market validation.


  1. Are you seeking at least $250,000 from SDTC? Given SDTC typically funds 33% of eligible project costs, is your total project cost at least $750,000?



  1. Is your development and demonstration project likely to be between one and five years in duration?

  1. Once commercialized, is there a broad market for the technology?
