ENCQOR establishes the first Canadian pre-commercial corridor of 5G digital infrastructure — the key to making the digital economy a reality.
ENCQOR 5G has four distinct streams focused on supporting small-to-medium sized enterprises across Ontario and Québec, assisting in the pre-development of research, collaboration and vital testing of 5G technologies.
Stream – Open for Applications
iPaaS Network Access
The Accessing the 5G Innovation Platform as a Service (iPaaS) Testbed enables small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to get early access to a state-of-the-art 5G development platform for prototyping and testing new products and services.
Access to iPaaS is offered out of three ENCQOR 5G Digital Innovation Hubs. Not located near a hub? We’re now also providing remote access!

TalentEdge Internship PRogram
The TalentEdge Internship Program (TIP) stream of the ENCQOR 5G Program provides support for current college and university students and recent undergraduate or Masters graduates, to work on industry-driven research and development projects related to 5G, wireless and digital technologies at Ontario-based SMEs, preferably using the 5G Innovation Platform as a Service (iPaaS) testbed.
Companies can tap into world-class talent coming out of Ontario’s publicly-funded post-secondary institutions and strengthen their capacity to develop new 5G products, services and processes, while interns receive hands-on industry experience to excel in the digital economy.
