Refrigeration in Canada

Canadian as well as many other North American manufacturing and marketing companies specialize in refrigeration, heat pump and air conditioning efficient systems for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

R&D is as prevalent in world renowned research centers, such as CANMET Energy (Varennes, Ottawa, Devon) and Hydro-Québec Research Institute (LTE Energy Technology Laboratory, Shawinigan, Québec), as it is in Canada’s Agri-Food Process Engineering, Science and Technology facilities (Québec, New Brunswick, Ontario) and academic organizations, such as École Polytechnique and École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) of Montréal, and McGill, Toronto, Laval, and Sherbrooke Universities.

R&D activity in these centers focuses on developing and promoting advanced refrigeration, heat pump and air conditioning technologies, making them more and more energy efficient, while reducing their environmental impacts and improving human’s quality of life.

According to recent figures released by the publisher of the Canadian Refrigeration Journal, Canada is among the most prolific producers of scientific publications on refrigeration worldwide.
