Increasingly, the priority of both Government and the private sector is to exploit Canadian talent and resources in federal laboratories to their fullest potential in order to encourage the kind of entrepreneurial spirit that propels an information and knowledge-based economy.
Established in 1998, the FPTT annual awards program reflects the best practices employed by individuals in the public and private sectors, whether separately or as a team, to develop techniques, services and products that create jobs in Canada and new markets beyond our borders. For more information on the FPTT Awards Program and/or to put forth a nomination, please check out the Program's objectives and criteria.
Each recipient of an FPTT Award stands alone as an example of the type of entrepreneurial drive and daring that are the lynchpins of innovative success. Together, they illustrate the depth and breadth of technological talent in Canada.
