The Honourable Greg Rickford, Minister of State (Science and Technology), along with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), announced a new service providing firms with timely information and advice to identify and access Government innovation support programs that more adequately respond to their needs. Beginning today, it will be easier for small and medium‑sized enterprises (SMEs) to find and access business research and development (R&D) programs to accelerate their growth.

"Small and medium‑sized enterprises are the engines of Canada's economic growth and this new service will help businesses make effective use of federal innovation programs to allow them to take their firms to the next level," said the Honourable Greg Rickford. "This initiative promotes innovation by giving businesses access to the research support they need, so they can grow and create high‑quality jobs for Canadians."
