PIC will reimburse up to 50 per cent of eligible approved project costs.


Protein Industries Canada will co-invest in collaborative consortia that leverage strengths, address gaps and incent innovation across the value chain. Chosen projects will align to the four priority areas (create, grow, make and sell) and will demonstrate impact up or down the value stream.

The Supercluster’s contribution, both in magnitude and in proportion, to an approved project, will be determined by how, and the extent to which, project outcomes are aligned with its program areas and ISI themes, and the potential for transformation.
