What does your grant search strategy look like? If it involves typing keywords into a search engine, you’re probably committing more time than necessary, and missing out on relevant results. We assure you, there are better ways.
Let’s start with the Government of Canada website. It may not be the most exciting place on the internet, but it’s a treasure trove of resources for small business owners. On the business and industry page, you’ll find information about a variety of financing tools for your business, including grants, tax credits, and special low- or no-interest loans. There is even a Business Benefits Finder that allows you to filter and scroll through available grants.
Clean tech innovators will want to keep an eye on the Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada page, too. This is the best place to learn about major federal investments in research and development that could benefit your clean tech business. Not all of ISED’s programs are open to direct applications from industry, but many are!
Finally, remember to monitor provincial as well as federal websites for funding opportunities. We’ve compiled a convenient list of links to help you explore funding options in the various provinces and territories. No need to thank us–just get out there and get granted!
