CFI announces $363 million to boost research capacity at Canadian research institutions

July 26, 2000

Ottawa, July 26, 2000…Dr. David W. Strangway, President and CEO of the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), today announced an investment of $363 million to support 214 infrastructure projects in 59 Canadian universities, colleges, hospitals, and not-for-profit research institutions.

“These funds represent an unprecedented infusion of capital that will leverage an additional $545.3 million in funding from the provinces, and from partners in the private and voluntary sectors,” said Dr. Strangway. “This extraordinary level of partnership will not only benefit Canada’s research community, but will also play a critical role in strengthening Canada’s position in the global economy.”

Since August 1998, the CFI has invested a total of $839.3 million in research infrastructure at Canadian universities and research institutions. When coupled with contributions from other funding partners, the result is more than $2.097 billion in capital investment to help strengthen the research environment in Canadian institutions.

The projects announced today were approved by the CFI Board of Directors on the recommendation of multidisciplinary assessment committees made up of world-class experts from a wide range of fields and disciplines. To receive funding, applicants had to demonstrate the excellence and innovativeness of their projects and how they will benefit Canada. As a result: 

  • under the Innovation Fund, 41 institutions will receive a total of $354.3 million for 190 projects;
  • under the College Research Development Fund, the Board of Directors approved investments totalling $8.5 million for 21 projects in 15 institutions; and
  • under the University Research Development Fund, the CFI will invest $714,000 to support 3 projects at 3 institutions.

 “The government of Canada congratulates these research institutions and the researchers for the excellent projects that were selected following a highly competitive process,” said Mme Lucienne Robillard, President of the Treasury Board and Minister responsible for Infrastructure. “The CFI is an important element of the federal government strategy to ensure Canada’s success in the global economy. The Foundation plays a significant role in enhancing the well-being of citizens as well as Canada’s reputation as an excellent place in which to invest and live.”

Dr. Strangway also announced that, starting in 2001, the CFI will hold future competitions under these three funds.

“Thanks to the extension of the CFI mandate to 2005, and the $900 million budget increase that was announced in the last federal budget, we will be able to further invest in the development of the research capacity of Canadian universities and research institutions,” said the CFI’s Dr. Strangway. “Our universities and research institutions play a critical role in ensuring Canada’s research leadership, and in ensuring that communities across Canada reap the benefits of the knowledge-based economy.”

The CFI is an independent, not-for-profit organization established by the federal government in 1997 to address an urgent need of Canada’s research community for new, state-of-the-art research infrastructure. The CFI has been entrusted with a capital budget of $1.9 billion, and its investments are made in partnership with all levels of government, and with the private and voluntary sectors. Its work focuses on health, science, engineering, and the environment.
