Federal Investments Support Western Canadian Innovation and Exporting

 
The Government of Canada is providing over $4.1 million to support innovation and international trade in Saskatchewan's agricultural equipment manufacturing sector in an investment announced today by the Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for Western Economic Diversification Canada, at Morris Industries Ltd.
 
Morris will receive $3,457,953 through the Western Innovation (WINN) Initiative to commercialize an advanced manufacturing technology for its production process while Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP) will receive $700,000 through the Western Diversification Program (WDP) to rent trade show floor space at Agritechnica 2017 in Hanover, Germany.
 
The advanced manufacturing technology commercialized by Morris with the WINN funding enables the company to increase production capacity, offer new technology features in its products, while increasing its global competitiveness.
 
Morris will showcase its new features in its products when it attends Agritechnica in November, along with more than 40 western Canadian agricultural equipment manufacturers, agricultural service companies, and technology companies.
 
Agritechnica, with an attendance of 450,000 visitors from over 75 countries, is the world's most important trade show for western Canadian companies seeking to enter and maintain existing European markets and other international markets.
