Federal Government’s research investments support innovation and prosperity in communities across Canada

June 5, 2013

Halifax, June 5, 2013 – The Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State for Science and Technology, today announced a significant investment in cutting-edge research equipment, laboratories and tools that will help Canadian post-secondary institutions attract talented researchers and build a more innovative Canadian economy.

“Our Government’s investments in research infrastructure provide top researchers at Canadian universities with world-class facilities” said Minister of State Goodyear. “Canadians are seeing the benefits of these investments through growing clusters of industrial activity, innovative spinoff companies and high-quality jobs in the growing knowledge sector.”

The $47.7 million investment by the Federal Government through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) Leaders Opportunity Fund supports 234 projects across the country in the areas of health, agriculture and education.

 The announcement was made during the grand opening celebration of the Ocean Sciences Building at Dalhousie University. The Government of Canada is investing more than $2.4 million in infrastructure and operating funds in 12 research initiatives at Dalhousie University. This includes almost $800,000 for the establishment of the Ocean Sciences Building.

“CFI funding provides the vital equipment and labs our enterprising researchers need to push the boundaries of science,” says Gilles G. Patry, president and CEO of the CFI. “Cutting-edge facilities are magnets that attract the best research talent from around the world and act as key training grounds for a new generation of Canadian innovators.”

The Ocean Sciences building will provide a new home for the Oceans Tracking Network; the Marine Environment Observation Prediction and Response Centre (MEOPAR), a Network Centre of Excellence; and, lab space for Dalhousie University’s Canada Excellence Research Chair in Ocean Science and Technology, Dr. Douglas Wallace.

Some of the projects being supported through this latest round of CFI funding include:

  • Dalhousie University researchers are creating a unique world-class greenhouse gas analysis lab that will help provide important tools for soil management and mitigating emissions in the agricultural sector.
  • University of British Columbia researchers are identifying tools to help families treat children who experience difficulties interacting with their peers.
  • University of Saskatchewan researchers are improving our understanding of the effects of climate change on water resources to provide guidelines and policies for greater resource efficiency.
  • Wilfrid Laurier University researchers are delving into the fundamental make-up of viruses to develop better antiviral drugs for application in humans and important Canadian industries like aquaculture.

A full list of the funded projects is available on the CFI website, Innovation.ca.

The CFI awarded $36.7 million through its Leaders Opportunity Fund, which helps universities attract and retain top research talent, and $11 million through its Infrastructure Operating Fund, which provides operating and maintenance support for the funded infrastructure.

Economic Action Plan 2013 announced that $225 million in interest income earned by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) will be made available to support advanced research infrastructure.

Since 2006, the Federal Government has provided more than $9 billion in new funding for initiatives to support science, technology, and the growth of innovative firms. Economic Action Plan 2013 builds on this strong foundation, helping to position Canada for sustainable, long-term economic prosperity and a higher quality of life for Canadians.

 

About the Canada Foundation for Innovation

The Canada Foundation for Innovation gives researchers the tools they need to think big and innovate. By investing in state-of-the-art facilities and equipment in Canada’s universities, colleges, research hospitals and non-profit research institutions, the CFI is helping to attract and retain the world’s top talent, to train the next generation of researchers, to support private-sector innovation and to create high-quality jobs that strengthen the economy and improve the quality of life for all Canadians.
