On Thursday, February 22, 2018, the Government of Canada announced FedDev Ontario funding of up to $325,000 for FireRein.
The Government of Canada is committed to providing support to innovative clean technology companies. This not only contributes to a healthier environment, but also helps to create good quality jobs, strengthen the middle class and grow the economy for all Canadians.
This FedDev Ontario funding will help FireRein to fully commercialize Eco-Gel™, the world’s first and only 100% bio-sourced, 100% food-grade water additive used by firefighters to combat fires. Eco-Gel™ provides benefits to the environment, to the safety of our firefighters and to site restoration after a fire has occurred.
This is a good news story for eastern Ontario. Moving forward, the Government of Canada will continue to make strategic investments that help to make Canada a world-leading centre for innovation. More information on this announcement, and others like it, can be found at canada.ca.
