Published: February 17, 2022

The Government of Canada announced that the National Cybersecurity Consortium (NCC) will lead Canada’s new Cyber Security Innovation Network (CSIN). The consortium, which counts the University of New Brunswick as a founding member, will receive up to $80 million in matching funds over four years to advance Canada’s cybersecurity infrastructure, knowledge and workforce.

With additional cash and in-kind contributions already committed by partners, the total investment into this initiative is likely to be more than $160 million. The portfolio will be used to fund research, innovation and commercialization projects.
