Sector Growth Strategy

In May of 2019, the Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) engaged the provincial Department of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation (TCII) and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) to form a steering committee with the objective to develop a growth strategy for the clean technology and environmental services sector.

Partners agreed that the timing was right for NEIA to identify key priorities with respect to supporting business entrepreneurship, innovation, and acceleration within the sector. This decision was based on the recent publication of numerous provincial public/private industry growth strategies, the release of the province’s climate change action plan, the commencement and anticipated conclusion of a number of relevant initiatives, and a continued robust interest in the sector from the federal government.

Follow along in the process of the development of a sector growth strategy for Newfoundland and Labrador’s clean technology and environmental services sector through the links and documents below.

    Situational Analysis Part 1 – Literature Review

    The first component developed for the situational analysis was a literature review of newly available strategic publications relevant to Newfoundland and Labrador’s clean technology and environmental services sector. A wide variety of stakeholders were consulted to assist in compiling the list of publications to be reviewed, and were again engaged to provide insights related to the literature review’s findings.

    Situational Analysis Part 2 – Innovation and Support Ecosystem

    The second component developed for the situational analysis was a cataloguing of existing supports (program and/or financial) that have been accessible to assist firms in Newfoundland and Labrador’s clean technology and environmental services sector. Mapping the support ecosystem in this regard is essential in understanding what already exists that can be leveraged to support the growth of the sector – and in identifying possible gaps that may act as barriers.

    Situational Analysis Part 3 – Growth Strategies and Supporting Policies

    The third component developed for the situational analysis was to identify clean technology and environmental growth strategies deployed in leading Canadian jurisdictions, and gain an understanding of best-practice recommendations that are made and acted upon in support of the sector. As Newfoundland and Labrador establishes its key priorities and opportunities for its own sector, this information will provide valuable insight into what actions can be taken in support of the pursuit thereof.

    Situational Analysis Summary

    This document summarizes findings from the first three components of the situational analysis. Findings are summarized here only for the purpose of presentation and validation – and have not been prioritized, analyzed, or assessed for potential for inclusion in the eventual growth plan.
