A Canadian leader in practical problem solving

Camosun Innovates is home to the Camosun Technology Access Centre (CTAC), an applied research and innovation centre that provides dedicated access to specialized technology, equipment and expertise to local and regional companies.

CTAC works with companies to enhance their productivity and innovation, without competing with local small and medium-sized enterprises. Using rapid prototype systems like 3D printers to build custom prosthetics and water-jet cutters that can slice a precision cut through thick stainless steel, we help clients develop, test and refine products without prohibitive overhead costs.
