This past year and a half has been challenging for many Canadian tech organizations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain challenges, and a fundamental shift in how businesses and customers operate. Unstable working conditions, economic uncertainty, and more have caused difficulties that need to be addressed and overcome. Therefore, Canadian companies need to take advantage of government grant and loan programs more than ever.
“Let’s be clear about what’s at stake: Canada is in a global innovation race. We are competing with countries around the world for the most talented people, the newest technologies, and the fastest-growing companies. Jobs and prosperity will go to the countries that succeed in those three areas.”
-Canada’s Honourable (Hon.) Bardish Chagger, Hon. Kirsty Duncan, Hon. Navdeep Bains
