Forest Innovation Program | Natural Resources Canada (NRCAN)




The FIP directly supports the Transformative Technologies Program and the work of the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre(CWFC). The Transformative Technologies Program supports pre-commercial research and development and technology transfer for innovative technologies and processes in the forest sector. This research, which is delivered by FPInnovations, Canada’s not-for-profit forest research institute, is focused on four key areas:

  • next-generation building systems
  • bio-product development
  • integrated value maximization
  • innovation deployment

The Canadian Wood Fibre Centre collaborates with FPInnovations to enhance the relevance of CFS work by aligning federal research with the needs of industry. It delivers federal government solutions to problems identified by the forest sector.

The FIP combines the activities of the Transformative Technologies Program and the technology transfer activities aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises previously delivered under the Value to Wood Program.
