Government of Canada invests in Nova Scotia's clean technology sectorStaff Writer | July 27, 2017
Canadians will benefit from well-paying jobs and business opportunities created by a Halifax-based company that turns landfill waste into clean-burning fuel, thanks to a $2.6-million investment by the Government of Canada.
Canada MP Bernadette Jordan announces:
The emerging market for products converted from solid waste not only represents a new industry but will also result in less pollution and healthier communities.
The announcement was made today by Bernadette Jordan, Member of Parliament for South Shore–St. Margarets, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.
This project is being funded through Sustainable Development Technology Canada, which works with Canadian companies to bring early-stage clean technologies to market.
Investments in clean technology are part of the Government's Innovation and Skills Plan, a multi-year strategy to create well-paying jobs for the middle class and those working hard to join it. ■
