The Canada Foundation for Innovation 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 assists them in managing the full life cycle of a CFI-funded project.
A revised set of self-identification questions in the user profile: Starting Tuesday, March 30, 2021, all CAMS users will be prompted to complete their user profile by answering revised self-identification questions. The CFI worked with CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC to revise the self-identification questions that support Equity, Diversity and Inclusion analyses. The revision is also to expand data collected to include all members of LGBT2Q+ groups.
Project progress report 2021 and the Canadian Research and Development Classification (CRDC): The 2021 operational status question and project progress reports (PPRs) will be accessible in CAMS on April 1st, 2021. The deadline for answering the operational status question and submitting a PPR is June 30. Respondents filling out a PPR for a project submitted before October 2020 will first be asked to reclassify their project using the CRDC.
