Please note that the application process for the Canada Accelerator and Incubator Program has ended and that applications will no longer be accepted.

What is CAIP?

Delivered by NRC-IRAP, the Canada Accelerator and Incubator Program CAIP provides funding over a five year period in the form of non-repayable contributions to a limited number of outstanding accelerators and incubators that meet strict eligibility and selection criteria.

Contributions will support incremental activities that expand the overall service offerings to early-stage firms and entrepreneurs, and promote a higher output of SMEs that are investment-ready and able to develop into sustainable, high-growth businesses.

This initiative is part of the Government of Canada's Venture Capital Action Plan.
