Press Release – August 25th, 2015

Toronto, Ontario – As a result of recent negotiations, Fairtax Recovery Consultants Ltd., part of the Braithwaite Global Inventta Group, is excited to announce the acquisition of Onager Solutions Inc., a professional services firm that specializes in Government Grants and Incentives.

Mike Janke, President of Onager Solutions, founded the company in 2010 and has grown the firm into an award-winning industry leader in identifying and securing Government Funding. Onager Solutions, will be fully integrated into the Fairtax Grants & Incentives division, which dramatically expands the existing capabilities of Fairtax.

The “Fairtax Funding Strategy” provides a unique integrated approach to optimize clients’ government funding opportunities, tax incentive programs, and SR&ED funding. The firm will leverage existing expertise spanning every industry and jurisdiction across Canada to provide a comprehensive approach that encompasses all aspects of identification, application, and post-approval compliance.

This opportunity to work with Fairtax has positioned us to accelerate our growth on a national basis as the largest professional services firm dedicated to an integrated and strategic approach to government funding.” – Mike Janke


“Our goal has always been to make a world class Pilsner right here in Canada. Government funding has been a great tool for us when it comes to purchasing new equipment, training staff, or pursuing green initiatives. Fairtax has helped us streamline the funding process so that we can focus on what we do best – brewing great beer.”

“Over the past few years, Fairtax has helped us identify and secure funding that we might have otherwise missed. This funding has helped our microbrewery significantly offset training and capital equipment costs – the most recent example being the installation of our new state of the art canning line; this upgrade has significantly improved our product quality and shelf life!”
