The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Program is a federal program that uses tax incentives to encourage Canadian businesses of all sizes and in all sectors to conduct research and development (R&D) in Canada.

The program is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).These tax incentives come in three forms:

  • income tax deduction
  • investment tax credit (ITC), and
  • in certain circumstances, a refund.

According to the CRA, the SR&ED Program provides more than $3 billion in tax incentives to over 20,000 applicants annually, making it the single largest federal program that supports business R&D in Canada.
