Research infrastructure receives $63-million boost from the Government of Canada

New technology to detect brain injuries “on-the-spot” among innovations supported
January 8, 2014

Coaches of amateur hockey players may soon have a portable tool to quickly diagnose brain trauma at the rink, thanks to the work of Ryan D’Arcy at Simon Fraser University (SFU). D’Arcy’s lab is one of over 250 facilities in 37 universities across Canada receiving funding under the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s John R. Evans Leaders Fund.

Greg Rickford, Minister of State (Science and Technology), announced the $63-million investment today in support of cutting-edge research equipment, laboratories and tools that researchers need to make tomorrow’s breakthroughs and to improve the lives of Canadians.

From the most advanced sustainable energy research to medical technology, research conducted at CFI-funded facilities plays a vital role in communities across the country and contributes to Canada’s economic success and capacity to innovate.

Quick Facts

  • The CFI awarded $48.4 million through its John R. Evans Leaders Fund to help universities attract top research talent. In addition, $14.6 million was awarded for operating support through the CFI’s Infrastructure Operating Fund.
  • Ryan D’Arcy is a neuroscientist and leader of SFU’s NeuroTech Lab, a facility that operates in partnership with Surrey Memorial Hospital. Funding from today’s announcement will help fulfill his vision to have his portable technologies used to assess and treat major brain injuries and diseases on the sidelines, in hospitals and eventually in homes.


“Our government believes significant investments in Canadian research are essential to sparking innovation, creating economic prosperity and improving the lives of Canadians. Supporting Canada’s universities, colleges and research hospitals will bring more innovative ideas to market and strengthen our country’s economy.”

The Honourable Greg Rickford
Minister of State (Science and Technology)

Canadian institutions benefit from investments in research infrastructure which provide the tools needed to be at the forefront of innovation. The research conducted in these labs and facilities will also train a new generation of researchers which will help Canada maintain its position as a global economic leader.”

Gilles Patry
President and CEO of the CFI
