Exploration Incentives in Canada

PDAC has prepared a compilation of all financial incentives available for exploration at both levels of government (federal and provincial/territorial), which includes tax incentives, grants and direct and indirect financial assistance. The compilation includes information, from government and private sources as of May 2015, on each jurisdiction below and a summary in the form of an Excel Spreadsheet. Since Prince Edward Island and Alberta offer no incentives, these provinces are not mentioned.
