ISO 14001 implementation


Why to get your company ISO 14001 certified?


Today's, the protection of the environment and the prevention of pollution are major issues.


ISO 14001's recognized approach is implemented to support the protection of the environment by systematically reducing the impact of the environmental aspects that an organization can control.


Like ISO 9001, ISO 14001 is applicable to any type of company without regard to its size, in a context of continual improvement.


Pollution or wastes often indicate that resources are used inefficiently. An Environmental Management System (EMS) that is well designed will allow identifying opportunities for cost savings.


The implementation of an EMS can generate innovations, technological or process developments that will reduce the cost of a product. It may also help to protect organizations against legal liabilities.


An ISO 14001 certification will improve a company's environmental management and give access to the growing “green” market.

ISO 14001 implementationSR&ED Tax Credits ›››



What are SR&ED tax credits?


The Scientific Research and Experimental Development tax credits can be claimed for expenditures such as wages, materials, machinery, equipment, some overhead, and contracts used in research and development activities performed in Canada by corporations, individuals and unincorporated businesses to advance the scientific or technological knowledge, create new or improved, or state-of-the-art products or processes.


Activities that qualify for SR&ED tax credits may include:

  • Basic and applied research, and experimental development

  • SR&ED support activities such as engineering, design, operations research, mathematical analysis, computer programming, data collection, testing, or psychological research.


Generally, a Canadian-controlled private corporation (CCPC) can earn an investment tax credit of 35% of qualified expenditures. Non CCPC percentages are slightly less. In addition, a CCPC performing SR&ED activities may claim a refundable provincial tax credit of 35% on salaries paid in Quebec; rules vary with each province.
