Grants for April 2019

[Webinar Invitation] April 30 – Money for Manufacturers – Part 2: Funding ERP

Join us on Tuesday, April 30 at the webinar with SYSPRO , that will focus on how you can leverage government funding for ERP acquisition, implementation and training.

Today, manufacturers and distributors face numerous challenges: disparate systems with duplicate processes and data, the inability to support a mobile workforce, inventory control, departments working in silos, and the list goes on. By enabling a single source of truth and digitizing your business, ERP software can help you gain greater control and visibility, reduce costs and streamline business processes to optimize your supply chain or inventory. But how can you fund an ERP implementation when there are cash flow challenges and interest rates on borrowed capital keep going up?

Join this webinar on April 30 to learn about:

  • The key success factors of an ERP implementation
  • How you can maximize your ROI on an ERP system
  • Government funding programs available for ERP projects
  • How to prepare your application to maximize your chances of success
  • Post-project reporting requirements

Speaker: Igor Chigrin, Business Funding Expert, Fair Grant Writing

What is in 2019 Ontario provincial budget for you?

Last week the new provincial government published its first budget. Here are the most important initiatives for the business.

1. Introduction of Ontario Job Creation Investment Incentive. This is not a direct government funding program but an immediate write-off for eligible manufacturing and processing machinery and equipment and clean energy equipment. It is coupled with the Accelerated Investment Incentive for most other assets.

The purpose of these incentives is to facilitate capital investments. The immediate or accelerated write-off will help Ontario businesses reduce provincial tax. Talk to your accountant about these initiatives.

2. Launch of the Ontario Automotive Modernization Program (OAMP) to assist automotive parts suppliers adopt technology and become more productive, innovative and export-focused

3. Enhancing Ontario’s Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Network (AVIN) and launch of a “wintertech” stream to test mobility products and services in severe winter weather conditions.

4. Northern Ontario funding program will remove the requirement that applicants must be looking for recent university or college graduates. Program candidates will now include new entrants into the workforce, those transitioning to a new career, the unemployed and underemployed.

5. The budget confirmed the commitment to the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

6. The Ontario Interactive Digital Media Tax Credit. Companies under the Digital Games stream can apply for tax credit certification annually, rather than having to apply separately for each product they complete.

This spring, the Province will also be launching a micro-credentials pilot, which will create new, responsive training programs to help people develop the kind of in-demand skills that employers are seeking.

All other provincial funding programs will be reviewed during this fiscal year, and we expect more information later in 2019.
