The Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) helps Canadian companies land their first sale and test for their pre-commercial innovations with the Government of Canada. Through the BCIP, the federal government buys pre-commercial innovative goods and services for testing in real-world settings by government departments. Innovations are evaluated and become pre-qualified for potential contracts through a competitive Call for Proposals process.
