Pre-Qualified Innovations

When a Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) Call for Proposals closes, submissions are evaluated through a review process to establish a pool of pre-qualified proposals. PWGSC will seek a match with a testing department for each pre-qualified proposal's innovation. If a good "fit" is found between an innovation and a testing department, then PWGSC will negotiate a contract with the selected company to test the innovation, though no contract award is guaranteed. Departments interested in testing innovations can view the Test an Innovation page for more information.

The following is a listing of pre-qualified innovations from previous BCIP Calls for Proposals. Innovations from the pilot program of the BCIP, the Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program (CICP), are also included. The listing will be updated with new pre-qualified innovations after each Call for Proposals. Innovations are grouped under the applicable priority area. Find out more about BCIP's priority areas.
