Global clean technology activity is expected to exceed $2.5 trillion by 2022 as per government report.

As a strong innovator and producer of clean technology solutions, Canada is well positioned to seize the opportunities globally. Canadian clean technology developers have already proven their capacity for practical, real-world, results-driven innovation. These solutions are key to supporting Canada’s transition to a low-carbon economy and enabling other industries to become cleaner, with improved environmental outcomes and competitiveness.

The Canadian Government targets that by 2025, clean technology is one of Canada’s top five exporting industries, nearly tripling current value to $20 billion annually in exports. To support these targets with funds, the Government has introduced several Grants & Funds in addition to SR&ED Tax Credits.

Companies in this sector can claim SR&ED tax incentives for projects conduct systematic investigation and advance the technology gap.
