Ontario’s leading forest-based innovation accelerator.

As an independent, non-profit corporation, The Centre for Research and Innovation in the Bio-Economy, CRIBE, supports and develops a sustainable, profitable provincial forest bio-economy. We bring together researchers, forest sector and end-users to create and commercialize innovative forest-based, low-carbon solutions.

Our vision is to create and support a dynamic, collaborative network of stakeholders in Ontario’s forest bio-economy, acting as a catalyst to accelerate innovation, productivity, sustainability and profitability in the sector.


Over the last few years, CRIBE has driven innovation in Ontario through its main initiatives; Project Support, the Nextfor network, the Forest EDGE and our International Collaboration efforts.
