Government Grants and Incentives Services

Each year, the Canadian federal and provincial governments provide financial support to corporations exceeding $37 billion, and the number of new government initiatives to facilitate business growth across all sectors and industries is increasing. Despite the diverse number of funding programs available, accessing these programs has historically been a challenge for businesses. Many programs have complicated terms and conditions, lengthy application and submission processes, stringent compliance requirements, and strict deadlines. The programs are also evolving continuously, with new program phasing in and legacy programs phasing out, requiring ongoing monitoring.

Ryan’s Government Grants and Incentives practice simplifies the process, helping you navigate the complexities of the funding identification and application procedure to substantially increase the chances of success and unlock substantial financial benefits. Our comprehensive funding service deploys a team of professional consultants with a broad depth of expertise to help clients tap into more than the 500 grant, loan, and tax credit programs available to businesses across Canada.
