Alberta Innovates and Natural Resources Canada are investing $12 million ($6 million each) in building technology testing capacity through targeted infrastructure investments at existing facilities or sites within Canada, and in enhancing national coordination in emissions reduction through support for Consortia capable of connecting facilities and expertise into an integrated network. The objective is to establish a world-class Canadian Emissions Reduction Innovation Network (CERIN) that positions Canada as a leader in developing exportable emissions management solutions, and achieving cost-effective emissions reduction and regulatory compliance.

The Network will:


  • Connect national capacity, facilities and sites;
  • Enable coordinated and collaborative R&D and technology testing;
  • Facilitate knowledge and information sharing, including technology performance data; and
  • Support training and development of next-generation highly qualified personnel (HQP) to drive oil and gas sector innovation.
