About the Canadian Clean Technology Innovation (CCTI) Network

The Canadian Clean Technology Innovation (CCTI) Network has been formed at the request of the federal bureaucracy, the Canadian clean technology industry is made up of over 800 Canadian-owned innovation-based firms employing 50,000 people with many young Canadians employed across Canada and exporting solutions equivalent in value to the livestock, forestry and mineral products industries.

As a private sector-led policy initiative, the CCTI Network will support the full recognition of the Canadian clean technology industry's role today, as well as the full consideration of its potential role domestically and internationally.  The CCTI Network engages with legislators who seek to consult with the private sector on other policy areas including climate change, infrastructure, energy, water, trade, capital markets, procurement, intellectual property, innovation,  and international development. The CCTI Network is available to be consulted by regulators needing practical and affordable solutions to protect the air, earth and water. Finally, the CCTI Network will be the Canadian private-sector sponsor of the CIGI initiative for full economic modeling of global de-carbonization of the economy through new economic tools such as National Accounts Reporting of Environmental Goods trade.

The CCTI Network operates under the auspices of the Centre for International Governance Innovation and is made possible by a grant from the Ivey Foundation.   

Céline Bak is the coordinator of the CCTI Network.  Her research on the Canadian clean technology industry is referred to here in the Government of Canada’s electoral platform, cited as Analytica Advisors. She is a senior fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation and serve as the coordinator for the CCTI Network.  You may also refer to this CIGI policy brief  and to this synopsis of the 2015 Canadian Clean Technology Industry Report.
