Summary: Research & Development are core activities of each of the Wesley Clover companies. Since we are headquartered in Canada but operate in several countries along with our Strategic Partners, we have had the opportunity to observe what other nations are doing to support industrial R&D activities. It is abundantly clear that our competitors are often able to benefit from R&D support programs that are considerably more generous, and more effective, than Canada's. We applaud the government's decision to review business R&D support programs, and offer herein our review of recent experience along with some suggestions for improvement.
