Innovation in Agriculture: Canadian Industrial Bioproducts Industry


The industry members of the Canadian Industrial Bioproducts Value Chain Roundtable (the “IBVCR”) released the 2017 Canadian Industrial Bioproducts Industry Priorities Paper. This paper was developed by industry members of the IBVRCT based on the Round Table’s strategic plan (2017 – 2019) and 2016/17 policy consultations across Canada, including:

  • Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC) Canadian Agricultural Partnership policy framework (2018 – 2023)
  • Clean Growth and Climate Change
  • Clean Technology in the Natural Resource Sectors

The priorities cover four main market segments: biochemical, bioenergy, biofuels and biomaterials. The priorities focus on driving valuable knowledge-economy job creation and economic growth by leveraging Canada’s strong agriculture sector, scientific and commercial research capacity, highly educated population, and robust entrepreneurial communities.
