Competitive Licensing Opportunities

When competitive licensing opportunities become available, NRCan will post a notice on this webpage to invite interested parties to submit a business plan for consideration. Business plans must be submitted to NRCan’s Intellectual Property Division before the advertised deadline.  Successful candidates will be invited by NRCan to negotiate a commercialization licence. The terms of these licences may include commercial exclusivity in a given field or territory.
