Support for Research and Development in the NWT Construction Industry

Presented by: Tony Asseiro, MEng, BEng from Crowe MacKay LLP

You may not think that your business is engaged in research and development, but like many small construction companies seeking to improve their existing processes, materials and services, you could qualify for funding under the Government of Canada’s Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Program. These tax incentives come in three forms: an income tax deduction, an investment tax credit and in certain circumstances, a refund.

Attendees will leave this presentation with a clear understanding of how to make successful funding claims under the SR&ED program, and how to connect with experts who can simplify this process. If you want to leverage your experience tackling construction challenges in the North to increase your competitiveness and improve your bottom line, this presentation is for you.

This session was in partnership with the NWT & NU Construction Association.

Resource Development in Canada: The Challenges of Balancing People, Planet, and Prosperity

Presented by: Lynn Exner, Chief Operating Officer, Canada Action Coalition

Canadian natural resources and development projects are a vital cornerstone of the Canadian economy and way of life. They are also some of the most hotly debated and misunderstood undertakings in the country, with implications for every Canadian, especially in a post-pandemic world. The call to be global leaders in balancing climate commitments, indigenous rights, and economic development is a top priority for the government, business, and citizens alike.

This session includes opening remarks from: Caroline Wawzonek, Minister of Industry, Tourism and Investment, Mayor Rebecca Alty, with the City of Yellowknife and NWT & NU Chamber of Mines, Executive Director, Tom Hoefer
