For a limited time, we are increasing our funding for small and medium-size businesses (SMEs). You pay only 25% for the first four months of an innovation project done in collaboration with a post-secondary institution (some restrictions may apply).
As SMEs prepare to take advantage of an increasingly robust economy, we know how critical it is to push ahead with research and innovation. That is why we have upped our funding levels — so you can get on with the important innovations that are vital to your business.
- Proposals can be submitted any time
- Capacity is limited, so apply as early as you can
- Eligibility includes all SMEs and not-for-profit organizations*
- No cap on reduced-cost units per partner
- Open to all sectors and disciplines
