Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) Grant

Canada’s nearly 2 million small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the key drivers of job and wealth creation in all sectors of the economy. IRAP stimulates wealth creation through technological innovation by providing technology advice, assistance and services increasing innovation capacity.

The benefits of IRAP include:

  • Primary vehicle for stimulating the innovation capabilities
  • Access, develop and exploit new technologies to create new materials, devices, products and processes
  • Increase knowledge essential for growth and prosperity
  • Increase capabilities and competitiveness
  • Reduce overall organization costs
  • Increase sales

The requirements for IRAP are:

  • You must be a small and medium-sized enterprise in Canada, incorporated and profit-oriented
  • Have 500 or less full-time equivalent employees
  • Exploit the technology in Canada
  • Capacity to finance your part of the project
  • Show that project results can be commercialized
  • Show interest in growth through technology

IRAP grants from the National Research Council primarily cover labour costs directly associated with approved research and development projects. If your organization is involved in developing or improving technology, you may qualify for federal assistance. Take advantage of our government’s commitment to innovation and technological advancement.


With years of extensive experience in accounting, engineering, management consulting and quality management, and in affiliation with Kreston GTA of Kreston International, a leading global accounting firm, we maintain our reputation and operate for success.
