The IC will be a technology centre primarily for established and growing companies that want to advance remote operations but also the ones interested in technology innovation in general. The proximity of those companies will encourage and facilitate collaboration on innovative technology research and development projects and generate joint industry projects and business-academic collaborations, embracing the power of collision spaces. The IC will accelerate the growth of those companies, advance technology development across multiple sectors and communities in the province, contribute to diversifying and greening our economy (reduce footprint, better decision-making, better use of natural resources, etc.) and be a catalyst to develop a larger innovation district.
