About ACTia

Founded in 2011, the Alberta Clean Technology Industry Alliance (ACTia) is the only province-wide and industry-focused group working to support Albertans developing clean technology (“cleantech”) — products and services that improve economic performance and reduce environmental footprint.

ACTia is the leading voice for Alberta’s cleantech sector; fostering local and global connections between technology developers, entrepreneurs, investors and customers; and is accelerating industry development.

Ensuring our members lead the way in clean technologies will help sustain regional economic growth. ​

ACTia has joined forces with Foresight Cleantech Accelerator Centre and will be known as Foresight Alberta as of September 2021.
