On Tuesday, June 16, 2015, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., NorthBridge Consultants and Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC) is hosting a free seminar in Mississauga, Ontario, to help companies in the agri-food sector better understand government funding programs and Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax credits, and especially how multiple government funding programs can be leveraged to execute business strategies.

The seminar will provide an overview of the SR&ED program, including recent modifications to the program. This seminar will equip engineers, technical personnel, business owners, CEOs/CFOs, and senior managers with the right tools to ensure compliance with SR&ED regulations; it will also provide details on how to ensure that contemporaneous documentation is generated as per SR&ED best practices.

Additionally, the seminar will deliver information pertaining to provincial and federal government initiatives that target expansion, innovation, exporting, hiring, and training.  Instruction will be provided on how to allocate and separate costs between programs, and case studies will be reviewed to illustrate examples of various funding opportunities.
