Mitacs helps to empower Indigenous innovation in Canada
Like companies everywhere right now, Indigenous-owned businesses and organizations need to innovate in order to grow and achieve their strategic goals. But the tools you need to do that require talent, time, and budget, and finding the ideal combination of these three elements can be a challenge.
Mitacs can help with our Indigenous Pathways. We will work with you to find the right academic talent to achieve your innovation goals. Projects are a minimum of four-months in duration – they can be longer – and now your contribution is only 25% of the cost of projects that have an Indigenous partner organization and/or an intern who is Indigenous.
