Our future, Canadian way of life, our social, healthcare, education and arts and culture programs will need a healthy Canadian balance sheet to fund. Getting Canada back to work when it's safe, securing a future for younger generations depends upon smart decisions made TODAY.  Drawing on strengths and focusing on financial catalysts is key. 

ASK -  Don't abandon Canada's future. Protect one of Canada's best opportunities for financial recovery. Implement the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance Resilience and Rebound Emergency Fund to save 12,000 science and research based small and medium businesses.

Technology - Canada's post COVID19 economy catalyst. Advanced technologies and ICT sectors were outpacing the economy and jobs growth at almost twice the national average. Demand for future economy products and services, science, research and technology talent and their innovations will continue.  We could lose our financial catalysts in tech, the drivers of the economy without immediate action.  Only 11% of technology company owners surveyed are confident the existing funding is accessible for business survival and businesses are shuttering by the hour.

Be part of the next big thing 

The world is moving into a digital transformation, in part boosted by COVID19.  Artificial intelligence and smart cities will lead the way. Following the pandemic, we expect medical and health technologies and financial technologies to grow faster. Canada has the technology and talent to continue as world class leaders in the future, if we can keep our technology entrepreneurs and innovators connected with their businesses now. The good news is most of this work can be done from home during social distancing. We can work on Canada's comeback and future balance sheet recovery today. 

ABOUT the CATA R&R Emergency Fund

The Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance proposed Resilience and Rebound (R&R) Emergency Fund addresses tech companies left behind under current programs.  These vital Canadian companies are the future, invest their own money in research and science, and can lead Canada out of this economic crisis. As they pass review scrutiny of the research and science tax credit program, the companies are known, trusted and strong. The existing payment mechanism, a Science Research & Economic Development advance delivered through Canada Revenue Agency, will allow funds to move as efficiently as CERB. The $3.6B R&R Fund for 12,0000 companies is fast, accountable, and simple with low administrative overheads.
