In the recent November 2016 Fall Economic Statement, the Province proposed an application deadline for OIDMTC which passed into law on December 8, 2016. To be eligible for the OIDMTC companies must apply by the day that is 18 months after the end of the company’s taxation year during which development of the eligible product(s) was completed. This 18 month application deadline is in effect the day that is six months after November 14, 2016.
The Ontario Chamber of Commerce has released an update to the Export Market Access (EMA) program informing applicants that they will be accepting applications for projects/activities that are completed before April 30, 2017.
Do you have a global mindset but think your company is too small to be an exporter? Well, think again.
Recognizing that some companies naturally have a global mindset early on in their development, the EMA program was established to help small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) access and expand their growth in foreign markets.
Through the EMA program, companies can receive funding of up to 50% for a maximum of $30,000 towards eligible activities including international trade show attendance, development of marketing tools, investment in market research, and participation in foreign bidding projects.
Interested applicants are encouraged to review the new Application Guide, released in January 2017, to ensure that they meet eligibility requirements, or contact our government funding experts directly, for a free consultation.

In today’s competitive and data-driven business environment, the importance of protecting your intellectual property is higher than ever.
Exploiting synergies between SR&ED/IRAP and patent applications can save time and resources.
Many people don’t realize that significant parallels exist between what is required for a SR&ED/IRAP filing and for a patent filing. Join experts from Northbridge Consultants, a professional engineering firm and subject matter expert on government funding, and PCK, a leading boutique intellectual property firm, to find out how you can efficiently combine your SR&ED/IRAP and patent application processes.
The seminar will include a discussion about the requirements for the SR&ED and IRAP programs, about the fundamentals of intellectual property protection, and about how the application process for each filing can be combined into a single process, allowing you to coordinate actionable tasks with relevant time periods.
- Introduction to government funding (SR&ED/IRAP)
- Introduction to fundamentals of intellectual property protection
- Explanation of how to process SR&ED applications in parallel with patent applications
- Case studies (Using a SR&ED technical narrative to write a patent)
