The Federal Government announced a call for proposals for the Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP):
The BCIP was launched in 2010 as a pilot program to connect Canadian companies with federal departments and agencies that have a need for innovative products and services. By selling to the federal government, businesses can demonstrate the value of their products and services, and potentially generate future sales to non-government customers in Canada, and around the world.
