Who are we?
As a Canadian non-profit organization, we leverage provincial and territorial strengths to be the reference, the national voice for the cleantech sector nationwide. Aside from its Board of Directors - Alberta Clean Technology Industry Alliance (ACTia), Foresight, Écotech Québec and Ontario Clean Technology Industry Alliance (OCTia) - our network extends to 200+ cleantech CEOs and several Provincial/Territorial organizations who act as one-stop entry for cleantech in each region.
CanadaCleantech Alliance coordinates regional clusters, associations and hubs to identify and crowdsource issues, obtain guidance and mobilize for change. CanadaCleantech uses a comprehensive and coordinated approach that takes regional realities into account. It encourages its partners to go beyond sharing information and emphasizes joint value creation by generating new knowledge together.
