One of the first steps in developing a new innovative municipal infrastructure product or service is determining the potential market for it. In addition, when applying for CT funding support, the ability to demonstrate a quantified market is essential. This early stage market intelligence can be difficult and time-consuming to find and interpret.

Communities of Tomorrow assists companies, municipalities and researchers in determining market potential for their ideas, products or services either in-house or through a variety of strategic alliances. An example of one of those strategic partnerships is with Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP), an organization which helps Saskatchewan companies find and develop markets for their products outside Saskatchewan. STEP brings resources together to provide world-class specially tailored services and programs including Trade Development, Market Intelligence, International Finance and Logistics, and International Development Projects.
