Last updated: 14 October 2021

The Federal Government is investing CAD 3 million in Alberta's construction and engineering industry through Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD). This investment will help small and medium-sized businesses adopt new products and technologies that improve the energy efficiency of buildings and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.


WD funding is complemented by an investment of more than $2.8 million from Alberta Innovates (public agency), in-kind support from industry and $165,000 from the Smart Sustainable Resilient Infrastructure Association (SSRIA), bringing the total project funding to over $6.3 million.


Products and services expected to be commercialized include:

- materials for walls, roofs and foundations;

- mechanical and electrical system improvements;

- sensors and lighting products that reduce energy consumption;

- software for storing and analyzing performance on energy efficiency and GHG.
