Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Tax Incentives

As described by the Government of Canada, Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax incentives are intended to encourage businesses to conduct research and development in Canada. If your business (or other eligible organization) is engaged in scientific research and experimental development — like the Innovation Challenges you submit through OCIP, for example — you may be able to earn tax incentives that reduce your income tax payable. View our SR&ED page to learn more about the program and how to claim this incentive.


Funding Programs

The OCIP database contains 80+ funding programs from organizations across Canada. Once an Innovation Challenge has been submitted, the OCIP algorithm will match the Innovation Challenge to the funding program that suits the research best. Funding will be awarded at the discretion of each funding organization.

Below are just some of the organizations that host the funding programs listed in our database.
