Governance

An equitable and diverse strategy for growth.

VISION

Our vision incorporates a strategy for Canadian small-medium enterprises, start-ups and multinationals to navigate the digital economy, accelerate growth and improve the ease of doing business in adoption of Smart Manufacturing for a Connected World.

WHAT WE DO

REMAP is a technology accelerator. As new products are launched at an exponential rate, we create supply chains by leveraging Canadian technologies to create business advantage. In a world where software applications and disruptive technologies dominate, hardware differentiates REMAP to strengthen Canada’s value chain.

AN INTEGRATED ECOSYSTEM

The Refined Manufacturing Acceleration Process (REMAP) is a new network made possible through the Government of Canada’s Business-led Networks of Centres of Excellence program.  

Working together, this network of small and large industry partners, research organizations, and academic institutions, aims to build a product enablement supply chain for growth and innovation.  

Through shared resources and knowledge, REMAP promotes lateral innovation across many sectors to position products manufactured in Canada that will compete on a global scale.

Why Canada? Why REMAP?
