The Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR&ED) Program is the largest single source of federal government support designed to encourage Canadian businesses of all sizes and in all sectors to conduct research and development (R&D) in Canada. It assists all types of businesses including partnerships, proprietorships and trusts.
In 2016 the SR&ED Program provided approximately $2.7 billion of tax assistance and processed over 17,000 distinct claimants. Of these, about 75% are small businesses.
The Department of Finance is responsible for the legislation defining the program while the CRA is responsible for administrating the program based on that legislation.
The SR&ED Program provides financial incentives to encourage R&D in Canada in the form of tax credits at 15% and 35% of qualified expenditures, where the 35% rate can be refundable after reducing taxes payable to nil.
