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.

Annual reports

This year began on a celebratory note as we launched a new competition of our flagship fund, the Innovation Fund, the goal of which is to keep Canadian research at the forefront, ready to address the most pressing global challenges. It ended with a stark example of why it is so critical to do so. The global coronavirus pandemic of 2020 underlined the importance of keeping laboratories equipped and ever-ready.

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.
