IRAP and Youth Employment Program
Through Canada’s Economic Action Plan, the federal government is providing additional funding to the National Research Council’s Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) to enable it to temporarily expand its initiatives for small and medium-sized enterprises. NRC-IRAP will receive total additional funding of $200 million over two years, starting in 2009-2010. From this incremental funding, the program will provide $170 million over two years for contributions to companies. Another $30 million will help companies hire over 1,000 new post-secondary graduates.
More information is available at the National Research Council.
