Annual & corporate reports

Each year, our corporate plan highlights our activities for the year ahead and our annual report looks back at the past year’s accomplishments. Guiding it all is our five-year strategic plan.


Aiming high: Strategic plan 2023–28

Our strategic vision for the CFI from 2023 to 2028 is to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow while growing prosperity and building a stronger future for Canada through research. By supporting Canadian research institutions to address current and emerging science and technology challenges, we will help them seize opportunities to contribute to the vitality, health and prosperity of communities. This vision reflects our commitment to Canada’s research community, which we demonstrate through investments in research facilities and equipment.

Listening, reflecting and aiming high

This year, we set our sights on the future. In that spirit, we renewed our commitment to excellence and our support for Canada’s research talent, and set new goals in the context of the opportunities and challenges faced not only by our country, but the world.

Corporate plan

Our corporate plan charts the course for program delivery, financial accountability, communications and outreach activities, evaluation of outcomes and impacts, and corporate services over the coming fiscal year. This annual plan is a way for us to be accountable to elected representatives, government officials, and to all Canadians about how we use public funds, and to be transparent about our activities for the coming year.
