Grow your global network

The Accelerated Growth Service, is led by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) and nine other federal organizations. The Accelerated Growth Service helps growth-oriented Canadian businesses expand by helping them access the key government services they need to grow, such as financing, exporting, innovation, and businesses advice.

Each Accelerated Growth Service partnership provides businesses with:

  • A dedicated advisor that helps bring the right partners to the table;
  • Connections to government programs and services that support business growth; and
  • A tailored and coordinated growth plan.
