SCC created its Innovation Initiative in 2017 so Canadian innovators from coast to coast could reap the benefits that standardization offers. We engaged with more than 250 from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to help them successfully navigate the standardization system here and at the international level. We also directly supported 130 Canadian companies by providing invaluable customized standardization advice.

The following sample case studies demonstrate how SCC’s Innovation Initiative has helped to build a stronger innovation ecosystem by providing standardization solutions to help Canadian innovators:

  • protect health and safety
  • support sustainability
  • ensure compatibility
  • enhance consumer confidence
  • ensure market access
  • boost competitiveness

No matter what the challenge facing these Canadian innovators, these cases show that SCC’s Innovation Initiative has made a difference over the past five years.
