$35M in university infrastructure funding awarded

Saskatoon, SK – The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) is awarding more than $35 million in research infrastructure funding for universities across the country.

The funding is being provided through the CFI’s John R. Evans Leaders Fund, which is designed to help universities attract and retain the best and brightest researchers from around the world by equipping them with cutting-edge research infrastructure.

The announcement was made this week at the University of Saskatchewan.

“When the country’s researchers have access to state-of-the-art tools and facilities, they can ask bold questions, find remarkable answers and apply them in new and often unexpected ways. Their discoveries and innovations further Canada’s reputation as a nation known for its research excellence,” said Gilles Patry, president and CEO of the CFI, Canada Foundation for Innovation
