Funding Opportunity: Investments in Forest Industry Transformation (IFIT)
The Honourable Seamus O’Regan, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, announced that the government is launching calls for proposals for the Investments in Forest Industry Transformation (IFIT) program to invest almost $83 million to bridge the gap between new product development and commercialization and ensure a more competitive and resilient forest sector. The IFIT program aims to create a more competitive and resilient forest sector with a focus on low-carbon projects that result in new or diversified revenue streams. IFIT-funded projects help diversify the forest product market through high-value bioproducts like bioenergy, biomaterials, biochemicals and next generation building products.
