Our Mission

But to Win the Net Zero Race, We Need to Level Up.

Here’s how we’re going to meet our ambitious goals:


Our comprehensive ramp of problem-driven, accelerator programs support innovators in reaching the market faster, and rapidly scaling success.


Our Innovation Challenges support industry in identifying market-ready innovation to meet their environmental and climate targets.


We expedite the growth of Canadian technologies through connections to global markets, partners, and customers in countries around the world.


We support innovators to leverage private capital through matchmaking and showcase opportunities that engage early- and later-stage investors. This infuses much-needed capital into cleantech innovation.


Our national cleantech network of engaged stakeholders represents a diverse range of regional, sectoral, and occupational interests. Together, we can tackle the climate crisis through innovation.

The climate crisis is happening before our eyes in real time. It’s imperative that we act now if we’re going to mitigate the worst effects of climate change. Our team at Foresight is committed to relentlessly driving cleantech adoption through collaboration with our Helix 5 stakeholders. It will take a massive effort and a whole lot of teamwork, but we cannot afford to step back from the challenge of preserving a livable future for generations to come.
