Description

How to Get Money from Canada Government for Your Startup?

—— Guide on Claiming SR&ED and other Major Grants

如何从加拿大政府身上薅羊毛?

——创业公司政府基金申请指南

Guess how many kinds of wage subsidies, grants, contributions and financial assistance are provided by Canada government? The answer is 339 different programs! Amazing, isn't it?

The inevitably following question is: how can I have a finger in the pie?

As one of the most hard-working groups in Canada, we the Chinese rarely ask that question, which makes us miss considerable opportunities, sometimes crucial.

To help you better understand these corporation benefits from the government, which essentially are out of the pockets of us taxpayers, and to claim what you deserves eventually, is the goal of this meetup.

你知道加拿大政府提供了多少种薪资补贴、各种基金和财务扶助措施吗?答案是:339种!很多吧?

紧接着的另一个问题就是:我要怎么样才能从中分一杯羹?

我们华人是加拿大最勤劳工作的群体之一,但却很少提出上面的问题。这让我们错过了很多发展的机会,有些甚至可以在公司发展遇到困难时救我们一命。

这些企业相关的政府福利,其实就是从我们纳税人钱包里掏出来的。帮助大家更好地了解它们,最终有机会拿到你应得的部分,这就是本次Meetup活动的目标。
