Why Explore Government Grant Programs?

The Canadian government offers substantial funding for an array of business development activities and industry-specific innovation projects. Companies like yours have access to potential funding of $10,000 to $1,000,000 per year in the form of cash reimbursements which can reduce the upfront costs of projects by up to 50% or more.
