Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC)

As sponsoring departments for the federal government, Environment Canada and Natural Resources Canada provide oversight of the operations of Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) to ensure it complies with the two funding agreements and the founding legislation.

SDTC is a not-for-profit foundation created by the Government of Canada. It finances and supports development and demonstration of clean technologies that provide solutions to issues related to climate change, clean air, water and soil quality, delivering economic, environmental and health benefits to Canadians.

SDTC operates two funds aimed at development and demonstration of innovative technological solutions:

  • The $590M SD Tech Fund, which supports projects that address climate change, air quality, clean water, and clean soil
  • The $500M NextGen Biofuels Fund, which supports creation of first-of-kind large, demonstration-scale facilities for production of next-generation renewable fuels.
