I'm an electrical Engineer MBA, taught at the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University and the University of Victoria. Work experience at Blackberry, IBM, NorthernTelecom and 6 startups.
Helped establish CRA's internal approval policies.
The CRA hired 2 dozen specialists in many technologies to interpret the Income Tax Act that formed the Vancouver SR&ED department's policies. I'm one, as well as an expert witness for the Department of Justice in Federal Court and the CRA's Special Investigations Unit.

And will reduce the chance your SR&ED claims will be audited by the CRA.
We'll prepare four pages that explain to the CRA why your activities qualify and supporting documentation so we're ready to justify your SR&ED claims to the CRA.
