Canadian Government Aids Software/Instrumentation Company
Maid Labs Technologies that makes monitoring, measurement, and data-logging instrumentation and software for wastewater and drinking water pumping stations.
The government of Canada has awarded $50,000 in financial assistance to a Granby, Quebec-headquartered business named Maid Labs Technologies that makes monitoring, measurement, and data-logging instrumentation and software for wastewater and drinking water pumping stations. The aid means the company can move ahead with its planned U.S. market development project.
This year, the national government adopted a plan to support Canadian entrepreneurs in their search for innovative solutions that will serve communities. The funding granted to Maid Labs is in line with this effort; the announcement was made Dec. 11 by Pierre Breton, member of Parliament for Shefford, acting on behalf of Navdeep Bains, minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.
Maid Labs was founded in 2013. The government's announcement said the company has just filed a patent application to confirm its position as a global leader in the development of a computational algorithm that gives its technology a high degree of precision in data interpretation. And the $50,000 repayable contribution was awarded through the Quebec Economic Development Program.
Breton said the company "is leveraging products that combine precision and flexibility without the costly infrastructure work that is needed for the installation of traditional technologies. This technological breakthrough gives the company a strong competitive advantage to continue to penetrate the U.S. market. I am proud to support the growth of this SME, which has combined know-how with technology."
