Markham's cleantech industry has emerged to address global sustainability challenges.

Markham companies are creating innovative solutions to advance the bio-economy, clean energy, green buildings, resource management, and sustainable transportation.

Local accelerators ventureLAB, YSpace and Seneca Helix help cleantech startups thrive and scale. Established companies are also welcome to tap into Markham’s local academic resource networks and programs offered by the York University Markham Campus and Seneca Polytechnic.

As a corporate entity, the City of Markham is a leader in creating liveable and healthy communities with sustainability at the forefront. In 2011, we published our Greenprint - Markham's Community Sustainability Plan, a 50-year plan with a bold vision and a strong leadership commitment to make Markham one of the most liveable and sustainable communities in North America.

By growing your cleantech business in Markham, you can be assured you're doing so in a community that lives by environmental sustainability principles.
