Cybersecurity Fintech Innovation Pilot Program (CFIPP)

Government of Ontario, Ontario Centres of Excellence, and Toronto Financial Services Alliance Logos

Accelerating the growth of cybersecurity companies in Ontario 

The Cybersecurity Fintech Innovation Pilot Program (CFIPP) is a one-year, $7.8-million initiative funded by the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science (MRIS) and delivered by Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) in collaboration with the Toronto Financial Services Alliance (TFSA). The program will accelerate the growth of cybersecurity start-up and scale-up companies in Ontario by partnering with financial institutions (FIs) seeking innovative solutions to cybersecurity challenges, and by providing them with cybersecurity talent.  

In order to facilitate potential partnerships between start-ups/scale-ups and FIs, OCE will host a partnering forum on September 28 to bring together potential collaborators for Technology Development and Demonstration projects.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can now apply to participate in the Finance Cybersecurity Partnering Forum.
