The Honourable Tony Clement, Minister of Industry and Minister responsible for FedNor, today announced a multi-million dollar Government of Canada investment, aimed at providing a solid foundation for economic recovery and development efforts across Northern Ontario.

Through FedNor’s Northern Development Program – Information and Communications Technology, Symboticware Incorporated received $114,300 in funding to develop and market products for use in remote monitoring applications. Once completed the products will be used to collect real time data from remote monitoring sites and distribute the information to geographically dispersed stakeholders.

“I would like to thank the staff of FedNor for their assistance with our private sector application, I would also like to thank The Honourable Tony Clement, Minister of Industry and the Government of Canada for their support in these challenging economic times,” said Kirk Petroski, Director of Business Development, Symboticware. “Funding innovation projects, particularly Information and Communications Technology development will strengthen our economy and position us as industry leaders in specialized technology applications.”

Currently, Symboticware has remote monitoring projects underway for applications in the Canadian Arctic as well as underground in Sudbury. Both applications will provide the most rugged, harsh and demanding conditions in which to develop and demonstrate its state-of-the-art remote monitoring technology.

Symboticware Incorporated is a Sudbury-based technology company specializing in intelligent systems for industrial automation. Symboticware’s goal is to be known as an industry leader in advanced monitoring products for the harshest remote applications.
