We’ve been accepted into the Creative Export Canada (CEC) program!
We’ve got some fantastic news to share today!
Metanaut has been accepted into Canadian Heritage’s Creative Export Canada (CEC) program.
From the official news release:
Canadian creativity is in demand around the globe, and Canadian Heritage’s Creative Export Canada program is helping give creators an opportunity to shine on the world stage. Today, the Honourable Pablo Rodriguez, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism, announced new Creative Export Canada funding for 22 different organizations.
This funding will support these organizations in exporting their artistic projects to international markets, and help generate significant economic benefits at home by creating jobs and fostering social prosperity.
Its mission is to make Canada’s creative industries more profitable.
This is a big milestone for the Canadian VR/AR industry and an even bigger one for our studio. We are the first VR/AR studio to have been accepted into CEC which shows that the government is increasing its support for the industry.
With this grant, we’ll be able to reach more machine-building maestros in key areas of the world like the United States and Japan for our VR game, Gadgeteer.
We’re going to do our best to make our country proud!
