Natural Products Canada Offers Funding to Validate Commercial Applications

Natural Products Canada (NPC) has launched a new Proof of Concept program, designed to help establish the commercial feasibility of early stage, innovative natural products and technologies in order to attract and de-risk subsequent investment. The program offers up to 50% of project costs to a maximum of $100,000 to eligible Canadian startups and companies with promising products or technologies.

Established in 2016, NPC is Canada’s Centre of Excellence for Commercialization and Research of natural products and the driving force behind Canada's Natural Product Innovation Cluster. NPC collaborates with several node partners, including Ag-West Bio, an Innovation Place tenant in Saskatoon.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Program guidelines are available online.
