Federal funding for GBC Research program in Research Commercialization and Innovation

Federal Citizenship and Immigration Minister Diane Finley today announced funding for GBC's Research Commercialization and Innovation (RCI) program. The federal funding will match money received from the Ontario government.

This new Ontario post-graduate certificate program will offer a tailored program for internationally trained individuals with advanced research, technology or engineering degrees the entrepreneurial/small business, project management, language, proposal development and fund management skills necessary to work in the applied research or commercialization field in Canada. The program will also be available for Canadian students wishing to apply their learning into practical R&D projects as they learn about the innovation to market cycle. We're fostering innovation literacy for Canada's productivity.
