Located in Canada’s Niagara Region, Vineland Research and Innovation Centre is a world-class research centre dedicated to horticultural science and innovation. Our researchers in Applied Genomics, Consumer Insights and Horticultural Production Systems work together to deliver innovative products and production solutions that address the needs of the horticulture industry and advance Canada's research and commercialization agenda.
Vineland’s Business Development Office aligns business and science interests by assisting with commercialization, technology scouting and technology transfer activities.
We are an independent, not-for-profit organization, funded in part by Growing Forward 2, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative. Vineland has been designated as an eligible Research Institute by the Canada Revenue Agency.
With a highly-skilled research team, oversight from an independent Board of Directors, engagement from an international Science Advisory Council and collaboration with more than 160 global partners including a Stakeholder Advisory Council, Vineland’s goal is to enhance Canadian growers’ commercial success through results-oriented innovation.
