Tax Credits and R&D Grants

We are recognized as a public research centre, which means that companies can apply for tax credits for academic research or research carried out by a public research centre or research consortium (SR&ED tax credits). In order to benefit from this credit, you need to make an advance ruling request, usually within 90 days of signing a research contract. For further details, visit the Revenu Québec or Canada Revenue Agency website.
If the project is not eligible for these research tax credit programs, it may be eligible for a tax credit for technological adaptation (CO-1029.8.21.22 – French only). Please visit the Revenu Québec website for further information.

The programs available are many and varied and change over time. We can help you identify the programs that best fit your development plan, find out whether your projects are eligible and help you with the process.
There are many grant categories, mainly divided into grants for companies and grants for CCTTs (college technology transfer centres) and academic institutions. The programs are administered by Ministries, consortiums and public organizations.
