How to access up to $20B in grants and incentives annually
In a recent survey, Canadian manufacturing executives stated that investment in technology and innovation will be the keys to growth during the turbulent economic times ahead. Whether it’s technology, machinery or digital transformation, Canadian Manufacturers are moving forward and 90% of them plan to spend at least 3.6% of their revenue on innovation in 2019. The important question is how they plan to fund this growth.
Grants and incentives can be an important source of funding for manufacturers. In fact, governments in Canada disburse more than $20B annually through grants and incentives. Yet actioning this funding can be time-consuming and expensive. This might be why only 28% of manufacturers surveyed said they took advantage of government grants/direct funding last year and 70% will be self-funding growth through internally-generated cashflow.
