Following fast on the heals of the Canadian Research Chair funding announcements earlier this month, the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) has awarded $23.4 Million to hundreds of projects across the country.

According to Ed Holder, Minister of State (Science and Technology)

Canadian researchers need state-of-the-art tools in order to undertake world-class research. Our government believes significant investment in these tools is essential to making scientific breakthroughs, which improve the lives of Canadians and increases economic prosperity.

The funds are dedicated to providing tools and infrastructure that allow leading researchers to continue expanding the frontiers of science, health, social sciences and humanities. An additional $7 million will be used to support the operational costs of this infrastructure.

The funding includes:

  • $1.9M to support 13 projects in Alberta
  • $3.6M to support 24 projects in British Columbia
  • $1M to support 4 projects in Manitoba
  • $546,000 to support 3 projects in New Brunswick
  • $324,000 to support 4 projects in New Foundland
  • $339,000 to support 3 projects in Nova Scodia
  • $5.9M to support 35 projects in Ontario

  • $557,000 to support 5 projects in Saskatchewan
