Bringing innovation into reach

Mitacs makes innovation possible for more people in more places across Canada and around the world. We make investing in new knowledge easier through access to top researchers, flexible project plans, and co-investments in talent. We work closely with businesses, researchers, and governments to create new pathways to safer cities, better healthcare, improved products, a cleaner environment, and a more diverse and inclusive economy.

We believe innovation begins with people—it begins with you.

Over the last quarter century, Mitacs has invested more than $1.3 billion in R&D, co-funded 100,000+ research collaborations, and powered 10,000+ SMEs across Canada. We create the right conditions to turn new knowledge into impact and help develop next-generation solutions to the next big challenges.
This is who we are, this is what we do. We bring innovation into reach.
