Management Advisory Service

The Management Advisory Service (MAS) program allows eligible small and medium size technology enterprises to access up to 40 hours of business management advice from Certified Management Consultants (CMCs) who meet the program criteria. The program is administered by CMC-Canada and funded by the National Research Council - Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP).

The MAS program ensures that companies supported by NRC-IRAP have access to qualified CMCs to help them deal effectively with management issues that could limit their success. The program will help company management define issues, set priorities and establish action plans.
