NRC's promise

""

 

A cornerstone of sustainable growth is the support of science, experimentation and exploration, deeply rooted in social responsibility, to deliver the technologies of tomorrow. Over the years, NRC has demonstrated the foresight to anticipate the technological challenges and opportunities that have presented themselves. Equally essential is providing the pathways to transform new ideas into solutions, which our industries can use to improve the lives of all Canadians—a foundational principle that has been true throughout NRC's 100-year history and will remain true tomorrow
