National Research Council (NRC) National Research Council Logo


The National Research Council is the Government of Canada's premier organization for research and development. It has been active for over 80 years. NRC is composed of 19 different institutes and national programs, spanning a wide variety of disciplines and offering a broad array of services. We are located in every province in Canada and play a major role in stimulating community-based innovation.

NRC institutes and programs are organized into two key areas, Technology and Industry Support, and the Research and Technology Development Program.

The NRC's research strengths are organized around key sectors such as biotechnology, information and communications technologies, measurement standards, molecular sciences, aerospace, manufacturing, construction, ocean engineering and others.

NRC has moved boldly into emerging and strategically-important fields such as:

  • Bioinformatics

  • Environmental and Sustainable Development Technologies

  • Fuel Cells

  • Genomics

  • Nanotechnology

  • Photonics

  • Nutraceuticals

  • Proteomics

Research in each of these areas is critical to the health, well-being and economic prosperity of Canadians and will help ensure that Canada becomes a world-leader in innovation.
