New Grants in Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence money

Emergex SR&ED Consultants is always on the lookout for new sources of funding from governments. As the new decade starts, we have good news for you!

Indeed, the government organization Prompt Québec makes two specific grant programs available to companies in the information and communication technologies (ICT) industry, namely:

Quebec Cybersecurity Innovation Program

If your company operates in the field of cybersecurity, the Quebec Cybersecurity Innovation Program can grant you up to 25% of the budget of your cybersecurity innovation project in the form of non- refundable grants. You could also apply to this program for the cybersecurity phase of your software development. Application to this grant is open until March 18, 2020. In addition, a webinar given by Prompt discussing the program in detail is scheduled on January 22nd. For more information, please contact the program coordinator, Mr. Nicolas Maignien at 514-875-0032 #20 or by e-mail at

Prompt AI – Innovation Program

The Prompt AI – Innovation Program (only available in French) funds a portion of expenditures for Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects. This financial assistance is usually provided by means of non-refundable grants of up to $150,000 per company involved in a collaborative innovation project. Companies may file an application until January 31, 2020. For any questions about this program, please contact Mrs. Sourour Ben Cheikh at 514-915-6334 or by e-mail at

Deadlines for both programs may seem very short, but the team at Prompt will assist you throughout the application process.

If you are interested in one of these two grants and think you can qualify, do not hesitate to contact the program manager at Prompt, indicating that they have been referred to you by Emergex RSDE.

For any other tax credit, grant or government assistance, Emergex remains your partner of choice! We can accompany you both in (1) the selection process of the different programs that best meet your needs and (2) attaining the best possible return on investment by combining these programs.

Shawn Errunza – Jintronix 200x200 This year I am looking to finance my tax credits in advance, and not only did Emergex introduce me to the right people, but every lender is very comforted by the fact that I’m working with Emergex. They have a reputation of working with solid companies and that reputation is a big benefit to all of their clients.
