Foresight Canada Grows Partnership with MLT Aikins

April 12, 2023

At Foresight, we’re on a mission to see Canada become the first G7 country to reach net zero. To achieve this ambitious goal, we need support from key industry leaders who share our vision of a greener future. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our expanded partnership with MLT Aikins.

Last year, we announced MLT Aikins’ exclusive legal sponsorship of Foresight’s Alberta Grow program, which helps growth-oriented cleantech companies strengthen their leadership teams, overcome challenges, and identify opportunities in order to scale their ventures faster. This year, MLT Aikins has expanded its sponsorship of our Grow program to include British Columbia.

Our partnership with Foresight has given us the opportunity to meet and assist countless innovators on the cutting edge of alternative energy, clean technology, and food and agriculture in Alberta. We look forward to expanding our relationship with Foresight and our continued support for the sector and in BC.

Through this expanded partnership, Foresight Canada and MLT Aikins will foster the growth of more cleantech ventures, support the scaling of more made-in-Canada climate solutions, and expedite Canada’s path to net zero.

We are so excited that MLT Aikins is expanding sponsorship of the Foresight Grow Program. Last year’s partnership saw the accelerated growth of many inspiring Alberta-based cleantech ventures, and we can’t wait to see what comes from this expansion in British Columbia. It is commitments from corporate partners like this that drive the commercialization and scale of critical climate solutions and establish Canada as a global leader in the transition to a green economy”
