Introduction

Purpose

The
following
document
is
a
compilation
of
federal
and
provincial
funding
sources,
both
private
 and
public,
which
are
suitable
for
Ontario
companies.

We
attempt
to
cover
all
funding
sources
 in
all
markets,
and
list
most
information
relevant
to
your
decision
to
apply
to
a
program.

Our
 goal
is
to
help
speed
the
process
of
searching
for,
and
comparing
different
programs
to
find
the
 one
that
is
right
for
your
project.




Caveat

This
 is
 a
 living
 document
 that
 requires
 frequent
 updates,
 and
 may
 not
 include
 every
 funding
 source
 out
 there,
 although
 we’d
 like
 it
 to.
 
 If
 you
 come
 across
 a
 new
 source
 of
 funding,
 or
 a
 needed
update
for
the
document,
send
a
quick
email
to
lcameron@marsdd.com
and
we’ll
make
 the
necessary
changes
for
future
editions.



Tips
for
Funding
Success

As
anyone
who
has
ever
applied
for
external
funding
(namely
government
funding)
will
tell
you,
 it’s
 competitive.
 
 Even
 if
 your
 company
 meets
 all
 the
 eligibility
 requirements,
 your
 application
 may
be
rejected
since
most
funding
programs
are
discretionary.

The
following
are
a
few
useful
 pointers
to
keep
in
mind
in
order
to
increase
your
chances
of
success:


 • Typically,
the
following
activities
are
not
eligible
for
government
funding:


 o Continuing
operations.
 o Restructuring
as
a
result
of
bankruptcy
or
insolvency.
 
 Funding
applications
will
generally
be
rejected
if
the
project:
 o Has
no
benefit
beyond
the
organization;
or
 o Appears
to
lack
the
financial/technical/managerial
resources
necessary
to
make
 the
project
a
success.
 
 If
 possible,
 take
 a
 look
 at
 what
 funding
 is
 available
 before
 taking
 on
 a
 project.
 
 If
 you’re
 considering
 starting
 a
 business
 or
 launching
 a
 project
 that
 will
 require
 external
funding,
take
a
look
through
the
available
funding
sources.

This
way,
you
 can
tailor
your
project
to
the
requirements
of
the
program
from
the
outset,
rather
 than
trying
to
explain
your
way
into
the
eligibility
requirements
later
on.



 Your
 company
 must
 prove
 that
 it
 needs
 the
 money
 and
 that
 the
 funding
 will
 generate
 economic,
 human
 capital
 or
 knowledge‐based
 benefits
 for
 Canada
 (or
 Ontario,
 depending
 on
 the
 funding
 source).
 
 We
 can’t
 emphasize
 enough
 how
 important
it
is
to
make
a
solid
case
for
your
project.

Demonstrating
that
the
funds
 will
 allow
 you
 to
 generate
 revenue,
 create
 jobs,
 enhance
 the
 skill
 level
 of
 your
 employees,
or
increase
an
important
base
of
knowledge
is
an
absolute
must
in
any
 funding
application.


 
 Government
 funding
 is
 strategic.
 
 The
 government
 allocates
 funding
 to
 programs
 according
to
the
nation
or
the
province’s
strategic
goals.

This
is
particularly
true
of
 funds
 directed
 toward
 scientific
 and
 technology‐based
 projects.
 
 Your
 project
 will


have
a
much
higher
likelihood
of
getting
funded
if
you
can
successfully
show
how
it
 furthers
the
underlying
strategic
objectives
of
the
program.


 • It
takes
a
while.

The
period
between
when
you
submit
a
funding
application
to
the
 time
 when
 the
 funds
 are
 disbursed
 can
 be
 anywhere
 from
 2
 to
 12
 months,
 depending
 on
 the
 complexity
 of
 the
 project
 and
 the
 amount
 of
 funding
 you
 are
 seeking.

Be
prepared
to
wait
a
while
before
the
funds
land
in
your
account.


 Be
aware
of
the
fund’s
targeted
phase
of
company
development.

You
should
have
 a
 clear
 idea
 what
 company‐stage
 most
 programs
 are
 funding,
 whether
 it
 be
 true
 start‐up
 financing
 to
 found
 a
 company,
 money
 for
 a
 proof‐of‐concept
 project,
 funding
to
assist
with
the
costs
of
commercialization,
or
support
for
the
pursuit
of
 international
 markets,
 each
 fund
 is
 generally
 interested
 in
 helping
 companies
 get
 past
a
particular
developmental
milestone.


 Be
 prepared
 by
 having
 the
 key
 tools
 for
 effective
 fundraising
 on
 hand.
 
 Most
 funding
 programs
 require
 you
 to
 submit
 some
 or
 all
 of
 the
 items
 listed
 below.

 Having
 up‐to‐date
 versions
 on
 hand
 will
 greatly
 reduce
 the
 burden
 of
 preparing
 funding
applications.


 o Reviewed/audited
financial
statements:

While
these
are
only
really
called
for
in
 the
case
of
established
companies,
it’s
also
important
for
start‐up
companies
to
 find
a
way
of
demonstrating
that
they
have
their
financial
house
in
order.


 
 Business
 plan:
 
 It’s
 great
 to
 keep
 a
 basic
 business
 plan
 on
 hand
 for
 funding
 applications,
but
a
plan
should
never
be
submitted
without
being
tailored
to
the
 criteria
laid
out
by
each
program.

Funding
programs
often
have
a
business
plan
 template
 that
 they’d
 prefer
 you
 use
 when
 submitting
 an
 application.
 
 If
 you
 follow
 the
 template
 to
 a
 T,
 it
 will
 make
 the
 work
 of
 those
 evaluating
 your
 application
that
much
easier.

 Financial
 forecasts:
 
 In
 the
 case
 of
 a
 revenue‐generating
 project
 or
 a
 program
 that
 provides
 assistance
 in
 order
 help
 a
 company
 make
 progress
 toward
 commercialization,
 it
 is
 important
 to
 provide
 well‐reasoned
 financial
 forecasts.

 They
 may
 not
 be
 incredibly
 accurate,
 but
 they
 tell
 the
 program
 administrators
 that
 you
 have
 thought
 seriously
 about
 the
 development
 of
 your
 company
 and
 can
create
a
reasonable
revenue
strategy.


 It’s
a
long
process.

Developing
a
knockout
funding
application
takes
a
great
deal
 of
time
and
thought.

If
possible,
put
together
a
project
plan
that
includes
key
 deliverables
for
the
application,
then
delegate
as
much
as
possible,
or
stick
to
a
 schedule
that
gives
you
enough
time
to
perfect
each
element
of
the
application
 without
rushing.




o

o

o

Eligibility
 criteria
 do
 not
 equal
 assessment
 criteria.
 
 It
 is
 essential
 to
 make
 the
 distinction
 between
 eligibility
 criteria,
 and
 the
 things
 that
 define
 how
 your
 application
 will
 be
 assessed
 beyond
 meeting
 the
 eligibility
 criteria.
 
 If
 you
 are
 unsure
about
how
applications
for
a
particular
program
are
being
judged,
call
the
 program
administrator
and
ask
him
or
her
to
give
you
a
rundown
of
the
application


assessment
 process,
 including
 all
 the
 decision
 factors
 being
 considered
 when
 making
funding
decision.


 
 When
in
doubt,
call.

If
you’re
reviewing
the
criteria
for
a
funding
program,
and
are
 uncertain
 about
 any
 detail,
 call
 the
 program
 administrators.
 
 These
 people
 are
 mostly
 there
 to
 help
 you
 put
 together
 the
 best
 application
 you
 can,
 so
 use
 their
 help
 to
 get
 clear
 understanding
 of
 the
 program’s
 requirements,
 including
 any
 insights
that
may
not
be
posted
online.

CIHR
Proof
of
Principle
Phase
II





Summary
 Proof
 of
 Principle
 Phase
 II
 (POP‐II)
 Grants
 will
 fund
 proof
 of
 principle
 research
 projects
 up
 to
 12
 months
 duration
 at
 the
 co‐investment
 stage
 undertaking
 follow‐on
 proof
 of
 principle
 activities
 in
 partnership
with
a
non‐academic
investor.
This
funding
opportunity
is
aimed
at
providing
a
platform
 to
better
enable
the
academic
institution/researcher
to
move
the
discovery/invention
further
down
 the
innovation
pipeline.
Research
projects
across
all
four
pillars
of
CIHR
are
eligible
for
this
program.
 Note
that
the
end
product
is
not
required
to
generate
revenue,
but
there
must
be
a
demonstrated
 market
and
opportunity
for
your
product.
The
stage
that
best
fits
the
POP
Phase
II
is
one
where
the
 principle
of
the
IP
has
already
been
proven
and
the
applicants
have
acquired
interest
from
partners
 willing
to
invest
in
the
new
technology.
The
proposal
should
be
for
further
confirmatory
testing
of
 the
 IP.
 Applications
 focused
 solely
 on
 prototype
 construction
 will
 not
 be
 considered.
 It
 is
 not
 a
 prerequisite
to
have
Phase
I
funding
in
order
to
apply
to
Phase
II.

 Continuous
intake
 To
 provide
 an
 opportunity
 for
 agricultural
 producers
 to
 diversify
 their
 economic
 base
 and
 participate
 in
 the
 biofuels
 industry
 through
 equity
 investment/ownership
 in
 biofuels
 production
 facilities.
 Funding
is
conditional
upon
agricultural
producer
investment
in
the
biofuel
projects,
and
the
use
of
 agricultural
feedstock
to
produce
the
biofuel.
 *Must

an
equity
investment
in
the
project
from
agricultural
producers
equal
to
or
exceeding
five
 percent
(5%)
of
the
eligible
project
costs.
 *Agricultural
feedstocks
must
be
used
to
commercially
produce
the
transportation
biofuels.
For
the
 purposes
of
ecoABC,
transportation
biofuels
are
substances
such
as
ethanol,
biodiesel,
and
cellulosic
 ethanol
that
are
produced
from
agricultural
feedstocks
and
can
be
blended
into
traditional
fuels.
As
 well,
when
blended
at
low
levels
(up
to
10%
for
ethanol
and
5%
for
biodiesel),
the
biofuels
can
be
 used
in
internal
combustion
engines
without
engine
modification;
 *The
 minimum
 annual
 production
 capacity
 of
 the
 new
 facility,
 or
 the
 increase
 in
 capacity
 of
 an
 existing
facility
must
be
a
minimum
of
3
million
liters
per
year
for
biodiesel
facilities
and
5
million
 liters
per
year
for
fuel
ethanol
facilities.
 



*
 contract
 costs
 and
 fees
 for
 design,
 engineering,
 procurement
 and
 construction
 services
 including
intellectual
property
licenses;
 



*
costs
associated
with
environmental
assessments
for
the
project
(subject
to
a
limit
of
10%
of
all
 eligible
project
costs
claimed);
 



*
costs
for
the
production
systems
and
equipment,
including
monitoring
and
tracking
systems;
 



*
salary
costs
or
fee
components
for
design,
engineering,
procurement
and
construction;
and
 



*
salary
costs
or
fee
components
in
contracts
for
implementing
and
commissioning
the
facility.
 
 *The
contribution
will
be
calculated
in
terms
of
an
incentive
rate
in
cents
per
liter
multiplied
by
the
 increase
in
the
annual
production
capacity
(nameplate
capacity)
of
the
renewable
fuels
facility.
The
 incentive
rate
increases
as
a
function
of
increasing
levels
of
agricultural
producer
investment
in
the
 project.
 The
 minimum
 rate
 of
 ecoABC
 contribution,
 at
 the
 minimum
 eligible
 agricultural
 producer
 investment
in
the
project
of
five
percent
(5%)
of
the
Eligible
Project
Costs,
is
eight
cents
per
liter
(8
 ¢/L).
The
ecoABC
incentive
rate
increases
with
increasing
levels
of
agricultural
producer
investment
 to
a
maximum
of
20
cents
per
liter
(20
¢/L)
production
capacity.
 *For
 all
 percentage
 levels
 of
 agricultural
 producer
 equity
 as
 a
 proportion
 of
 Eligible
 Project
 Costs
 above
five
percent
(5%),
the
contribution
(incentive)
rate
will
be
calculated
to
a
maximum
of
twenty
 cents
per
liter
(20
¢/L)
 Repayment
will
be
determined
by
a
project's
profitability.
 *Repayment
 will
 begin
 on
 January
 1,
 three
 years
 after
 the
 facility
 begins
 producing
 at
 its
 annual
 production
 capacity
 (nameplate
 capacity),
 and
 will
 continue
 for
 seven
 subsequent
 years
 or
 until
 repayment
totals
the
amount
of
the
original
contribution
to
the
recipient,
whichever
comes
first.
 *For
each
calendar
year,
the
recipient
will
repay
an
amount
calculated
as
of
December
31st
of
each
 year
as
follows:
Average
Gross
Income
Per
Liter
‐

 Continuous
Intake
 The
Collaborative
Research
and
Development
(CRD)
Grants
program
is
intended
to
give
companies
 that
 operate
 from
 a
 Canadian
 base
 access
 to
 the
 unique
 knowledge,
 expertise,
 and
 educational
 resources
 available
 at
 Canadian
 postsecondary
 institutions
 and
 to
 train
 students
 in
 essential
 technical
skills
required
by
industry.
The
mutually
beneficial
collaborations
are
expected
to
result
in
 industrial
and/or
economic
benefits
to
Canada.
 
 



*
In
general,
an
industrial
partner
is
defined
as
a
Canadian‐based
business
providing
products
or
 services
which
derives
the
majority
of
its
revenues
from
the
sale
of
these
products
and
services
and
 not
from
government
aid.
Such
partners
must
be
willing
and
able
to
exploit
the
research
results
for
 the
economic
benefit
of
Canada.
 



*
 Multinationals
 may
 be
 eligible
 if
 they
 have
 commercial
 activities
 which
 take
 place
 in
 Canada,
 such
as
R&D
or
manufacturing
related
to
the
proposed
research,
and
if
the
funded
activity
will
result
 in
significant
economic
benefit
to
Canada.
 



*
 Foreign
 firms
 may
 be
 eligible
 as
 a
 partner,
 provided
 an
 eligible
 Canadian‐based
 industrial
 partner
 plays
 a
 major
 role
 in
 the
 project
 and
 will
 exploit
 the
 research
 results
 for
 the
 economic
 benefit
of
Canada.
 



*
 An
 industrial
 partnership
 can
 consist
 of
 a
 single
 firm,
 an
 industrial
 association
 or
 producer
 group,
 a
 formal
 or
 informal
 consortium,
 or
 a
 grouping
 of
 these.
 In
 the
 case
 of
 consortia,
 financial
 support
 to
 the
 project
 derived
 from
 industrial
 sources
 can
 be
 leveraged
 and
 there
 must
 be
 active
 involvement
in
the
research
project
from
one
or
more
member
companies,
or
the
consortium
itself,
 if
it
can
demonstrate
the
capacity
to
guide
the
project
and
disseminate
the
results
for
its
member
 companies.
 



*
Public
utilities.
 



*
Start‐up
companies
(companies
in
the
R&D
phase)
that
have
sound
business
plans
and
secure
 financial
 backing
 may
 be
 accepted
 as
 industrial
 partners.
 However,
 they
 must
 demonstrate
 that
 they
have,
or
have
the
potential
to
acquire,
the
capability
to
exploit
the
research
results.
 *Direct
project
costs.
 The
industrial
partner
must
contribute
to
the
direct
project
costs
in
an
amount
equal
to,
or
greater
 than,
 the
 amount
 requested
 from
 NSERC.
 The
 industrial
 cash
 must
 be
 at
 least
 half
 of
 the
 NSERC
 request,
 with
 the
 balance
 provided
 as
 in‐kind
 contributions
 to
 the
 project
 by
 the
 industrial
 partner(s).
 NSERC
 will
 recognize
 only
 those
 in‐kind
 contributions
 that
 are
 fully
 documented
 and
 considered
essential
to
carry
out
the
work.

Program





Summary
 A
 FIT
 is
 the
 price
 that
 the
 government
 buys
 power
 for
 the
 grid
 for
 special
 cases.
 In
 this
 case,
 it
 means
that
if
you
generate
power
from
renewables
‐
solar,
wind
etc
‐
the
OPA
will
buy
the
power
 from
 you
 at
 a
 higher
 rate
 than
 the
 cost
 of
 electricity.
 The
 reason
 for
 FITs
 is
 that
 electricity
 from
 renewables
still
costs
more
than
from
coal
or
natural
gas.
