Summary: The combination of tax incentives and direct support of R&D and innovation is working very well for our business. Additional emphasis on aggressive outreach to industry by the federal government and academic institutions on both types of program may be valuable considering we were not aware of the direct support options available to us many years after taking advantage of the tax incentive program. Assisting students to be better prepared for employment in highly dynamic business enterprises should benefit Canadian companies performing R&D. Consideration of additional R&D incentive programs could benefit Canada beyond what current programs have provided, possibly encompassing additional sector specific programs and targeted prize incentives for selected grand challenge problems.
