CFI Online

A CAMS deployment is scheduled from July 7 through July 10 inclusive. Please be aware that minor service interruptions could occur during this period, although these are planned to be limited to early morning hours.

This update will launch the CAMS overview functions that were introduced recently at the Canadian Association of Research Administrators (CARA) conference in Toronto. The CAMS overview will provide summary information for institutions and projects.

The update will also change some of the underlying CAMS technology, and as such, it is possible that some minor issues may be introduced to CAMS by this release despite our best testing efforts. Please inform the CFI at should you notice new issues.



The CFI Awards Management System (CAMS) is the secure online portal that allows universities, colleges, research hospitals and non-profit research institutions to apply for CFI funding and manage pre- and post-award activities. The system is used by researchers and institutional administrators, and by reviewers assigned to assess the proposals submitted to the CFI.

CAMS has been evolving with the addition of new modules and functionalities since its launch in 2011. In December 2014, the CFI implemented new post-award modules. These include a number of new or improved features and functionalities aimed to better assist institutions in managing their portfolio of CFI-funded projects.

Users of the system may experience some technical difficulties in the next few months as a result of the introduction of these new modules. This is expected with any system implementation of such magnitude. Please report any issue that may arise to the CFI help desk at A summary of known issues and the expected timeframe for resolution can be found in the System transition section of the sidebar.

Important information on getting started with CAMS can be found in the Help section of the sidebar.

The CFI hopes to work collaboratively with CAMS users to continually improve the system. Feedback and ideas on how CAMS can better assist you can be submitted to
