Making It Easier to Invest in Research and Development

We have done the hard work needed to streamline federal innovation programs. We have consolidated duplicative programming, created new ones where there were gaps, and created a concierge service to help innovators navigate government programs. But there is still red tape that can get in the way of research and development.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Reform the Scientific Research and Experimental Development Program to reduce red tape and the need for consultants, better align eligible expenses to today’s innovation and R&D, and make the program more generous for those companies who take the biggest risks, promoting productivity, new inventions, and the creation of good jobs.
