$59M supports infrastructure for 351 researchers across the country

Kingston, ON – The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) recently announced $59 million in support for 262 projects in 40 Canadian research institutions, allowing 351 researchers to conduct cutting-edge research in world-class facilities.

“Access to modern, cutting-edge equipment and facilities is imperative to research in the 21st century,” said Dr Eliot Phillipson, president and chief executive officer of the CFI. “For more than a decade, the CFI has provided thousands of world-class researchers with the tools they need to do their work. Without the right infrastructure, they quite simply wouldn’t be in Canada.”

The government says it estimates that every dollar invested directly in research yields more than $7 in economic benefits, including jobs.
