The best way to describe it would be to say that the Innovation portal is primarily accessed digitally. As the honourable member noted, you go online, you indicate what kind of business you're in, which province or territory you're in, and so on. As you go through it, when you get to the end you have a kind of tailored list of the sorts of supports that might be available to you, given the sector you're in and the area of the country you're in.
The clean growth hub has a physical location. It's here in Ottawa, in the building that houses the majority of ISED's employees in the national capital region. Businesses can come through the front door physically and actually sit down with an adviser and learn about the kinds of programming and supports that are available across the country.
Obviously, we can offer those supports as well online and through telephone consultation, but we have brought staff together in a physical location to provide a kind of one-stop shop. In the same way that you might go into a bank and find a variety of services available, there is actually a location for this.
It's designed, obviously, as the name suggests, to focus very much on clean tech. We work very closely in particular, by way of example, with Natural Resources Canada, which obviously has a very strong interest in clean technology, and we have linkages into other players, such as Sustainable Development Technology Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada.
The clean growth hub, then, is very much focused on clean tech, it's a kind of partnership among federal ministries, and we have a physical location where we meet with a lot of companies. The Innovation portal, I would say, is bigger in scale, because it's reaching a much larger number of companies, and it's primarily a digital experience.
