An Eligible Project is a project approved by Invest Nova Scotia for purposes of the IRP and may include:
An Eligible Project must have a minimum total budgeted Nova Scotia investment (excluding tax) of no less than $350,000. The maximum amount of Eligible Project Costs to which the IRP rebate will be applied is $15,000,000.
