Solid Plan. Strong Team. Validated Technology.

Natural Products Canada (NPC) delivers a suite of strategic programs and services to help promising Canadian natural products achieve their full growth potential.

Fast-Track to Financing

Executive Talent

Need a strategic addition to your team to get you past the next hurdle? Know what needs to happen to move you to the next level but don’t have the time or experience to tackle it? This program might be for you. It’s designed to help high potential companies achieve key commercialization milestones through the addition of an experienced executive to the leadership team. The repayable program can cover as much as $50,000 towards an executive’s salary in their first year with the company.

Proof of Concept Program

You need to validate your product before it can go to market or attract investors. But you’re too advanced for research funding, and too early for private capital. So where do you go? The Proof of Concept Program can help. It provides funds for companies and research institutions to demonstrate the commercial potential of natural products and technologies. It covers up to half of the project costs, to a maximum of $100,000.
