International Science and Technology Partnerships Canada (ISTPCanada) develops and implements R&D collaboration programs under Science and Technology (S&T) cooperation agreements between Canada and its key trading partners, including India, China, and Brazil. Mandated by the Government of Canada through the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD), ISTPCanada facilitates the development of new R&D partnerships between Canadian companies, research organizations and their counterparts in other countries; invests in cooperative research projects with high commercial potential; and stimulates early-stage partnership development activity. In doing so, ISTPCanada develops new models of bilateral and multilateral collaboration that enhance Canada’s competitiveness through the increased use of international research-based alliances, and helps to strengthen Canada’s overall S&T, economic, trade and political relations with emerging nations. All S&T partnerships facilitated by ISTPCanada are jointly financed by industry, foreign partners, and often provincial governments.

From its inception, ISTPCanada has:

  • Helped generate 144 research publications and intellectual properties including patents, copyrights and trademarks;
  • Supported R&D projects leading to the development of 43 new products including resin formulation, bioassays, biomarkers, active compounds and simulation programs;
  • Facilitated the creation of 292 new employment positions within the research organisations it supported
