Canada's Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Navdeep Bains announced that the British Columbia-led
Digital Technology Supercluster will receive funding from the federal
Innovation Supercluster Initiative.
The project brings together over 200 organizations—including the University Health Network's Princess Margaret (PM) Cancer Centre—to work on 100 projects that will "digitally transform companies, solve industry problems and advance economic opportunities."
The Government of Canada defines a Cluster as a" dense area of business activity containing a critical mass of large and small companies, post-secondary and other research institutions. They energize the economy and act as engines of growth," while a Supercluster has even "stronger connections, a long-term competitive advantage, global brand recognition, and an outsized positive impact on job creation and economic growth."
According to the press release, within the realm of healthcare, the Digital Technology Supercluster will enable the creation of "a secure, anonymous Health and Genomic Platform" that will be used by "medical specialists to create custom, leading-edge cancer treatments that are personalized to the unique genetic makeup of each patient, building on Canada's current leadership in this area."
The Digital Technology Supercluster is one of five successful superclusters; together, these superclusters will receive $1.4 billion in total investments from the federal government and funding partners.
"It is an exciting and historic time for innovation in Canada. The Digital Technology Supercluster is a generational opportunity – one that holds significant promise for companies in BC and across Canada," says Bill Tam, Co-Chair of Canada's Digital Technology Supercluster consortium.
