    Research and Development

    Collaboration is a key ingredient to success: the connections and exchange of ideas between researchers and businesses are an integral part of our innovation economy.

    Companies often need research and development experts; students and recent graduates may need relevant work experience. Ontario offers a suite of programs that connect businesses with college and university students who can help with problem-solving. Other programs help companies hire recent grads to work in R&D and provide work experience to students in science, engineering and other technical programs.
