About Us

Our Roots

In September 2016, the Canadian Gas Association created the Natural Gas Innovation Fund (NGIF), an in-house project to focus its innovation agenda and targeting support for cleantech innovation in the gaseous energy industry. In 2020, CGA created CGA Enterprises and subsequently, under CGA Enterprises, a new corporate entity called NGIF Capital Corporation was established.
