    3. Health/Biosciences – Positioning Canada to be a global leader in health/bioscience’s innovation through long-term sustainable growth driven by the collaboration of health/bioscience’s companies and partners.
    4. Clean Technology – Driving transformative innovation and clean growth across all business sectors of the economy through increased development, commercialization and adoption of clean technology solutions.

These 6 are not limited to one per company.
