Fast facts about the Digital Technology Supercluster
Canada’s Digital Technology Supercluster is an industry-led innovation consortium centered in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Supercluster brings together small, medium-sized and large companies, post-secondary institutions, research and not-for-profit organizations, enabling them to collaborate in ambitious technology projects that will innovate the natural resources, healthcare and industrial sectors. The Supercluster then co-invests and supports these projects, managing investments provided by the Government of Canada and the public and private organizations which constitute its membership, with the ultimate goal to position Canada as a global leader in innovation and digital technologies.
What is a Supercluster?
A supercluster is an innovation hotbed that is home to strong industrial clusters, linked through their shared reliance on specialized inputs, including technologies, talent and infrastructure. Superclusters offer strong and numerous linkages across sectors, and between private companies, public entities, post-secondary institutions, and research and government partners. Superclusters create a strong brand and competitive advantage that translates into global recognition and impact, the ability to attract talent and investment across highly innovative industries, and exceptional performance, including an outsize impact on job creation and GDP.
Canada’s Digital Technology Supercluster is a proud member of a national network of five Canadian, industry-led innovation superclusters. Over the next five years, the federal government has committed to investing up to 950 million dollars in its five superclusters to drive major economic, social and industrial benefits for the country.
Why Digital Technology?
More data has been created in the last two years than in the entirety of human history, but less than 0.5% of this data has ever been analyzed. Unlocking the potential of data will establish Canada as a global leader in digital technology in the era of the intelligent enterprise. The Digital Technology Supercluster will leverage virtual mixed/augmented reality, data analytics and quantum computing to create scalable, applicable solutions that address key industry problems and advance economic opportunities for Canadians by applying data in new and innovative ways.
