8.1 Acknowledging CFI support

To better promote the impact of the research enabled by our funding contributions, we expect that institutions, communications staff and project leaders acknowledge CFI support in all public communications activities and products, including institutional and scholarly publications, presentations, facility and lab openings, media relations (press releases and articles) and social media.

The CFI should be tagged in appropriate social media posts on Twitter (@InnovationCA), Facebook (@innovationincanada) and LinkedIn. The CFI’s corporate name (Canada Foundation for Innovation) and/or official logo are appropriate identifiers for acknowledging contributions. Our logo can be downloaded in a variety of colours and formats. Consult our brand guidelines for more information.

We also ask that institutions affix CFI-branded stickers to individual pieces of lab equipment. Complete the order form to receive your stickers.

For a summary of additional responsibilities institutions have for communicating about federally funded research, refer to the Government of Canada’s Public Communications Policy of the federal research funding organizations.

Email our communications team at cficommunicationfci [at] innovation.ca to determine other ways to highlight our support.
