The mining industry has contributed greatly to Canada’s economic strength and growth. The industry directly employs more than 403,000 workers across the country in mineral extraction, smelting, fabrication and manufacturing, and indirectly employs an additional 193,000. The industry’s $57.6 billion contribution to Canada’s gross domestic product in 2016 included $24.5 billion in mineral extraction, and $32 billion in mineral processing and manufacturing . Mining is very cyclical with long project lead times and whilst R&D may not be claimable throughout the whole life span of the project it can potentially be claimed for short phases.
Examples of eligible R&D activities:
Expenditures can include wages, third party contractor cost, materials, machinery, equipment, and overheads.
