Big Funding is No April Fool’s Joke

Over one hundred research labs were pleasantly surprised yesterday (April 1st) when they learned of the Canadian government’s plan to hand out more than $89 Million in research grants for Canadian Research Chairs across the country. In addition, the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI), simultaneously announced that it was handing out over $3.6 Million in funding to help equip these labs with state of the art equipment and infrastructure.

As usual, the province of Ontario walked away with the largest chunk of funds, with $33.9 Million going to 39 labs across the province. Twenty two million was awarded to Quebec, followed by $15 Million to Alberta and $13 Million to British Columbia. Saskatchewan received the least amount of grant funding, with $500,000 going to Erika Dyck a History of Medicine professor at the University of Saskatchewan.

The full list of grants funded can be downloaded from the Canada Research Chair website.
