About Ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation’s Innovation Funding Program

Phase 1 of the Innovation program of Ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation (MEI) is designed to help Quebec companies, particularly small businesses, implement and commercialize their innovation projects, either alone or as part of a collaborative project (including collaboration with a member organization of QuebecInnove).

Under the program, MEI will provide up to $50,000 per project for individual companies, $150,000 per company for collaborative projects, and $350,000 per project for companies showcasing new technologies. This program does not have a deadline.

Note: It is not possible to combine support from these two sources of funding for the same project.
