The following is an excerpt from an April 30 media release published by the Government of Saskatchewan

Minister Responsible for Innovation Saskatchewan Tina Beaudry-Mellor, today introduced Bill 129, The Saskatchewan Technology Start-up Incentive Act, for first reading in the Saskatchewan Legislature.

  • the reformed Saskatchewan Research and Development Tax Credit; and
