    *There are many programs out there that support early and mid-stage R&D. Some provide tax incentives, while others may be Grants and Contributions programs or loans and financing programs. These programs are offered by different levels of government, by non-government organizations, and by the private sector.

    Through the work that OSME does we found that there are a number of gaps for companies with innovations in late-stage R&D: Pre-commercialization Gap companies are having difficulty moving their innovations from the lab into the marketplaceFinding that first buyer companies tell us that it is very difficult to find that first time buyer that reference sale. For a new innovation, customers want to know who companies have sold to before. They view these innovations as being higher risk, and they are not willing to take the risk of being the first buyer.Companies told us that it is easier to sell to foreign governments than it is to sell to the Canadian Government. We found that the Government of Canada has no good way of buying innovations.

    In response to these challenges the Government launched the CICP. It is designed to support Canadian companies in moving their innovations into the marketplace.

    This program was announced in Budget 2010 as part of Canadas Economic Action Plan.

    Right now, this is a pilot program, with $40 million over 2 years.
