CDMN’s innovation successes are catching the attention of some of the world’s biggest corporations. Just this past year, Manulife Financial, Canon and TD Bank have joined Canadian Tire in the Communitech Hub in Waterloo Region, Ontario, one of 29 commercialization hubs across the country that form the CDMN. The new TD Innovation Lab is collaborating with technology start-ups and companies and post-secondary students to develop new technologies that make the customer experience easier, quicker and more intuitive. Through CDMN, TD Bank is also supporting women in technology and small- and medium-sized companies at five hubs across Canada. TD’s national sponsorship of the CDMN Outbound Soft Landing Program will help another 45 Canadian companies expand globally.
