Scientific Research & Experimental Development Workshop

The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) program is a federal tax incentive program administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) that encourages research and development at the business level.  It offers refundable and non-refundable tax credits for expenditures on eligible work done in Canada.  First-time applicants and older applicants alike are encouraged to attend the workshop to find out what they have been missing.


This workshop will help you to:

  • understand the implications of SR&ED and remain competitive;
  • understand what work you’re doing that may qualify;
  • identify opportunities to get involved with the program;
  • document and keep records;
  • quantify your work in terms of cost and;
  • utilize the forms.

If you are considering or currently working on a project that involves developing new products or improving on existing products, devices, materials or manufacturing processes, this is your chance to speak with a subject matter expert and meet up with other individuals engaged in similar work.
