Our self-leveling project was aproved for support under the NRC Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) !!
The National Research Council-Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) is Canada's premier innovation assistance program for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). It is a vital component of the NRC, a cornerstone in Canada's innovation system, regarded world-wide as one of the best programs of its kind.
We are pleased to share with you that Cheelcare was awarded the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) SmartStart Seed Fund.
All OCE programs are discretionary and non-entitlement and involve a process that is highly competitive and attracts many applications. Eligible projects are reviewed on their merit and also assessed against program eligibility, OCE objectives and assessment criteria. Given the limited funding that is available, only projects that attain the highest marks and demonstrate the greatest likelihood of meeting program objectives are awarded funding.
