New Government of Canada tool will help Canadian businesses grow

Published by Frank Defalco on December 02, 2013

Greg Rickford, Minister of State (Science and Technology), along with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), announced today a new tool to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) find business research and development (R&D) programs. 

The Concierge Service tool is designed to assist SMEs who struggle to understand and access much of the R&D support available through Government innovation support programs that respond to their business needs.

“CME has been looking for something like the Concierge Service tool to help our SME members and it goes a long way in addressing their needs,” say’s CME President and CEO Jayson Myers. “With these kind of services SMEs can continue growing and employ more Canadians.” 

The Concierge Service provides a single point of contact either by phone, on-line, or in-person allowing for easier access to government innovation assistance programs, which in turn helps them grow into globally competitive companies. The new service will complement NRC’s existing array of innovation support programs.
