frequently asked questions

What is the difference between a grant funding and SR&ED tax credit?

Grant funding is typically proactive funding, specific to a particular project, where SR&ED is retroactive funding you can receive as a tax credit for innovative R&D efforts completed in previous fiscal years.  IRAP funding would be the most similar program to SR&ED, however IRAP has a higher funding allocation amount and is proactive, so you need to apply ahead of time, prior to starting your R&D project.

What are eligibility factors for funding?

There are a numerous funding programs available, all with different eligibility factors.  The larger funding programs do have certain requirements, which include a min employee count (usually 10+ employees), a min number of years in business (typically 2+) and require 2+ years of financials

Are Canadian grants only available for companies that are incorporated?

No, although the bulk of programs do require companies to be incorporated, there are still many programs available that allow other forms of business entities to apply.

Do funding programs only support research and development?

No, there are 4 different subsectors of gov funding opportunities.  R&D is one of those, as well as Human Resource (hiring and training), Export Expansion and Capital Investments/Expansion programs.

How long do I usually have to wait to get grant approval?

Each program has there own average approval timeframe.  Typically, the smaller funding programs such as hiring and training can be approved within a few days to a couple weeks, where the large expansion/capital funding programs can take an average of 3-4 months to receive approval (sometimes up to a year for the supercluster programs).  Therefore, we always encourage our clients to reach out to us as soon as possible, as a lot of the programs require approval before the projects can start.

Once approved, how long before I will receive my funds into my bank account?

Again, this will vary depending on the funding program and the number of applications they need to process payment for.  Some will release payment immediately, which could see your bank account within 2-3 weeks, where others only release funds once you submit a claim and show proof of payment.  For each program, will help set these expectations for you, so you can better manage your cash flow needs.


Client Testimonials

Great turnaround time. Reached out to get help with a grant very close to the deadline. The team was able to get all our company information and complete the application ahead of schedule. Was very impressed with their knowledge on what information to include in application to higher chances of approval.

The Grant Synergy team was an absolute pleasure to deal with! They provided great support throughout the entire application process and were very knowledgeable in which grants would be the best fit for us. Will continue to use them for our future applications.
