Research and Development (R&D) Programs
The Industrial Technologies Office (ITO) manages the Strategic Aerospace and Defence Initiative (SADI). This initiative, launched in April 2007, supports private sector industrial research and pre-competitive development (R&D) in Canada's aerospace, defence, security and space (A&D) industries through repayable project contributions.
These repayable contributions encourage much-needed Canadian private sector investment in R&D.
Learn more about SADI to discover how Canada's world-leading A&D industries are benefiting Canadians through a deep-seated commitment to R&D.
To find out whether your company's project is eligible for repayable contributions and step-by-step guidelines to applying to the program, continue on to the Program Overview section. To find out how to fully complete an application, visit the Information for Applicants section.
