Join the conversation

The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically increased the demand for technology in workspaces and factory floors across the country. Integral to those solutions were hardware and software deployments that guaranteed safety and productivity during the months of abrupt closures and disruptions to supply lines.

Today, manufacturing leaders are looking to leverage these same solutions to further revolutionize their operations – including technology deployments that encourage communication, increase productivity and spur innovation.

Fortunately, the Government of Canada offers a number of grant programs for manufacturers. Funding is available to help companies like yours to expand, innovate, create new jobs and support the nation’s transition to a green economy. But these competitive funds flow quickly and only those companies who are ready to respond will reap the benefits.

Join Manufacturing AUTOMATION and representatives from the Grants Office to learn about funding available to manufacturers across Canada. We will discuss large trends in grants available for your technology purchases, including an overview of financial support anticipated for 2022. Throughout the presentation, you’ll hear useful tips from industry leaders on how to ensure your company is ready to submit a competitive proposal that will stand out amongst the rest.

The live presentation will be followed by category specific on-demand sessions providing detailed guidance on applying for grants and bursaries applicable to your organization.
