Find It lists over 4,000 federal, provincial and municipal industrial support and tax incentive programs from across Canada, representing an estimated $24 billion in government funding per year. The Find It tool also offers a wealth of private financing opportunities.
Use Find It to identify and rank funding instruments against your particular funding needs, including: type of organization, industry sector, amount sought, and geographic location. The Funding Portal’s financing data is comprehensive and updated every minute. You save weeks of work.
The best way to use Find It is to conduct four or five searches to ensure you have covered all your bases.

Try searches based on keywords that represent your industry sector or your funding objectives (i.e. employment, equipment, R&D, etc.).
