Build In Canada Innovation Program (BCIP)

2014 Government Organization of the Year BCIP is a procurement program created as a pilot in 2010 to bolster innovation in Canada’s business sector, and to help companies bridge the pre-commercialization gap for their innovative products and services. Building on the early pilot program success, Economic Action Plan 2012 allocated additional funding for three years. As of 2016, $40 million will be permanently dedicated to the BCIP annually. The program provides the opportunity for innovators to: sell their pre-commercialized goods and services to the Government of Canada; connect with potential clients in federal government departments; get feedback on the use of their innovations in an operational setting; and enter the marketplace with a successful application of their innovations. The BCIP targets innovations in the environment;safety and security;health;enabling technologies; andthe military . The value of contracts under the program’s standard components will continue to be up to $500,000. Under the new military component, innovations could be eligible for contracts of up to $1 million. To date, 72 contracts have been issued to Canadian companies through the BCIP.
