Research Tax Credit

Research Tax Credit

Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) is a federal government program designed to encourage research and development through tax-based incentives. SaskCanola invests a significant amount of the producer levy contributions in research to manage new challenges farmers face in their fields. As a result of the research investment, SaskCanola is able to participate in this program and the benefits are passed along to the producers. These tax credits can be claimed by filing form T2038(IND) for individuals or T2SCH31 for corporations.

In addition, farm corporations may claim a portion of their levy contributions as a qualifying expenditure towards the Saskatchewan Research and Development Tax Credit by filing form T2SCH403.

Learn to Lead

In November, SaskCanola hosted its second leadership workshop that saw over 20 young Saskatchewan farmers partake in a two-day event that included sessions on governance, media training and decision making. Under SaskCanola’s strategic plan, ‘Producer Engagement’ is one of four key pillars and within said pillar, fostering youth in agriculture has been identified as a top priority. If you are interested in future leadership events and opportunities with SaskCanola, please connect with Policy & Producer Relations Manager Tracy Broughton at or call 306-975-0732.
