NORCAT was founded in 1995 as the Northern Centre for Advanced Technology by a team of business and academic visionaries dedicated to advancing Ontario’s mining sector. Its founders recognized the need for an organization to promote, educate, and support local entrepreneurs, tech innovators, and skilled labour workers to enable long-term and sustainable economic and social prosperity for Northern Ontario.

As Sudbury’s Regional Innovation Centre, NORCAT Innovation is focused on supporting early-stage tech startups and the people founding them. This includes providing access to key resources and connections to the networks they need to start, grow and scale their ventures. Since its humble beginnings, NORCAT has proudly evolved to be a multi-national, global company offering programs, services, and resources that provides clients with the skills, competencies, and confidence to fulfill their diverse and ambitious priorities and career aspirations.
