The Productivity and Innovation Voucher Program helps small and medium sized companies access direct assistance to help make their business more productive and innovative. The program lets businesses seek out expertise within post-secondary institutions to:

  • Improve productivity
  • Develop a new product, service, or process
  • Create growth

There are two tiers of the Productivity and Innovation Voucher Program.

  • Tier 1: Vouchers of up to $15,000 for eligible businesses that have not previously been awarded a voucher or are applying with a new project.
  • Tier 2: Vouchers of up to $25,000 for eligible businesses to build on work already done.

Vouchers are used to obtain services from eligible service providers. Businesses must select a provider and service that best fits their needs.
