Operated by the Consulate General of Canada in Boston, the program has assisted over 75 Canadian companies since its founding in 2013 with its unique business acceleration services that help companies commercialize or scale their business in the US market.

Participating companies come from across Canada in a variety of industries, including: information and communication technologies; healthcare – including biopharmaceuticals, medical devices and diagnostics, scientific research tools and enabling technologies; health IT; advanced manufacturing; robotics; clean tech; and emerging food technologies.

The CTA@Boston program provides selected Canadian companies with a four-month residency that includes office space at the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) in Kendall Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It is the only Accelerator on the planet that offers team mentoring from the Canadian Mentoring Service, which comprises over 70 trained mentors from the Canadian Entrepreneurs in New England organization.  Learn more about our mentoring program. In addition to office space and individualized mentor teams, the participating companies also receive introductions to local industry leaders, venture capitalists, and other key resources.
