Scientific Research and Experimental Development Tax Incentive Program
The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Program is a federal tax incentive program that encourages Canadian businesses of all sizes, in all sectors, to do research and development in Canada.
Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit Program
The primary objective of the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit (CPTC) is to encourage Canadian programming and to stimulate the development of an active domestic independent production sector. The CPTC program gives a tax credit to qualified corporations producing Canadian film or video productions. Canadian control requirements ensure that the incentive is available only to Canadian-controlled companies.
Film or Video Production Services Tax Credit Program
Under the Film or Video Production Services Tax Credit (PSTC), the federal government provides incentives to stimulate job growth by encouraging Canadians as well as foreign-based film producers to employ the services of Canadians.
Canada Export Community Investment (CECI)
As one of the many tools deployed by the Government of Canada to increase prosperity, the CanExport Community Investments program provides financial support to communities for their foreign direct investment (FDI) initiatives and activities.
The program provides support to Canadian communities seeking to improve their capacity to attract, retain and expand FDI in order to create jobs for Canadians, support innovation and increase exports.
For the purposes of the program, FDI refers to international businesses establishing or expanding operations in Canada. The program does not fund initiatives related to mergers and acquisitions, investments from other parts of Canada, trade or export. The program supports non-profit partnerships at the local community level. The initiatives supported by the program must focus on supporting the attraction, retention, and expansion of foreign direct investment through specific types of activities. Non-repayable contributions range from $3,000 to $500,000, and agreements are made for a one-year period, from January 1 to December 31. The program provides reimbursement of up to 50 percent of eligible expenses. If an applicant accesses other federal government support, the total federal support cannot exceed 50 percent.

Support will vary depending upon the needs of the client, the availability and sources of funding, the eligibility of costs, the economic benefits, and the project viability.
