As an organization, our focus will continue to be on creating opportunities for collaboration in the following areas. In addition to the seven priorities listed below, Protein Industries Canada believes the inclusion of Indigenous Communities and other under-represented populations is an important part of creating economic growth for Canada. We believe that there are many opportunities to create mutually beneficial relationships with Indigenous groups across Western Canada to help advance the plant-protein sector, and encourage industry consortiums to include Indigenous leaders and businesses in all Capacity Building projects.
- Be submitted by a minimum of two project partners (consortium), all of whom must be PIC members.
- Non-Canadian entities can participate in a consortium, based on approval by Protein Industries Canada.
- Each member of the consortium must contribute to the project in a meaningful way.
- All organizations listed on the proposal should be aware and agree to their inclusion in the submission.
- The initiative must be incremental to the regular business undertakings of the participating organizations, in that the project is new, would not be possible without participation of consortium partners, or would not have been undertaken at the same scope or scale without the co-investment provided by the Supercluster.
- Projects that build and expand linkages beyond Supercluster participants and leverage existing assets (capabilities, talent, infrastructure) are strongly encouraged, bringing relevant impact to the whole ecosystem.
- The project must be aligned with Protein Industries Canada’s objectives, PIC’s Capacity Building Priorities and their outcomes.
- Projects in which industry dollars are invested will be scored higher.
- It will be up to the consortium members to determine the amount and nature of their respective contributions. The contribution of each consortium member does not need to be equal.
- Projects that include Indigenous and/or other under-represented populations will be scored higher.
- Projects that involve SMEs (small- and medium-sized enterprises) and/or bring clear benefits to SMEs will be scored higher
For a project to be considered eligible for co-investment, it must:
