The government wants to help

Leverage government funding for technology development.

Technology development is always an investment. You either have a great idea to build or you need to improve an existing product to win more business and secure market share. Technology development can be costly and you need all the help you can get. Developers and entrepreneurs will want to leverage free and inexpensive money in order to get their goals achieved.

The Government of Canada and the provinces want to help grow the economy. They want to help technology companies with the development of innovative technology that will help grow the economy. They want to help you succeed. There is some work required to get this free money but it is well worth the effort to get some help getting to market in a timely manner.
