Canada’s cleantech future
From precision farming to energy infrastructure, Canada is poised for future growth in clean technology.
With a strong ecosystem for green innovation, Canada is poised for growth in all areas of the environmental and cleantech (ECT) sector—from renewable energy and wastewater management to farming, manufacturing and electric vehicles.
In 2020, the ECT sector in Canada contributed about $69 billion to our gross domestic product with Ontario, by far, the leading cleantech exporter.
Developing goods, services and processes to increase energy efficiency and reduce the world’s carbon footprint on the planet is big business—here and abroad—and opens the door to many opportunities for Canadian businesses.
