These companies go through a stringent qualification process and by looking to resolve some of Alberta’s urgent needs and challenges, they come to Canada with unique skills and talents paired with a firm determination to succeed.
Intrinsic Innovations works with these newcomers intimately and holistically to position them for success before and after they land in Canada. The company focuses on industries such as energy and clean tech, agricultural and food technologies, smart manufacturing, hardware, software, and robotics.
