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.

Corporate plans

Our corporate plans chart 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.

Annual reports

The past fiscal year was an especially exciting one at the CFI, with many noteworthy and impactful results. After wrapping up our 20th anniversary celebrations, we turned our attention to the future, and what we can do for researchers at every stage of their career, including the new generation just starting out. It is incumbent upon us to make sure that these researchers and innovators — with so much promise, and so much drive — have all the tools they need to seize opportunities and make important differences in the world.
