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 roadmap.

Annual reports

For an organization like ours – motivated by the transformative power of leading-edge research – this was an extraordinary year. We saw how fragile societies can be, but also how resilient. From the mapping of the COVID-19 genome to the development of vaccines, ventilators and antibacterial surfaces, to the ergonomics of working at home and the effects of lockdown on mental health, researchers responded to the global pandemic with focus and resolve.

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.
