Government of Canada invests in Saskatchewan innovation

Driven by innovation and backed by a community of supporters, Saskatchewan is home to a rapidly growing tech sector, which includes many start-ups that are capturing national and international attention.

Today, Prairies Economic Development Canada announced an investment of $900,000 to support the new Agtech Accelerator. Canada’s first venture-backed Agtech Accelerator was established by Economic Development Regina (EDR), Cultivator powered by Conexus and Emmertech. The Accelerator supports early-stage agtech companies to scale-up and grow by providing critical access to resources, programming and capital investment. The Accelerator builds globally competitive agtech start-ups and supports a long-term vision of further solidifying Regina and Saskatchewan as a global agtech hub that is focused on the agri-food value chain. It is a key part of EDR’s agriculture and food strategy, which builds on regional strengths and unique assets, while reducing barriers to growth.
