Alacrity Canada has been chosen to assist businesses in western Canada increase their international sales and investment in clean technologies. The federal government announced last week that Alacrity will get $1.3 million to create 100 jobs in clean tech that will help the country recover from the pandemic-caused recession.
“Canadian researchers and entrepreneurs are addressing the world’s most significant environmental problems with innovative solutions. They are on a quest to help this planet survive for many generations to come," Alacrity Canada's managing director Richard Egli said in a news release. "This new funding will give Alacrity an excellent opportunity to connect Canadian innovation with significant challenges waiting to be solved."
A total of $2.3 million is going to BC's clean tech sector, including $100,000 to the South Island Prosperity Partnership.
