The Canadian government has announced over $88 million for 102 new and renewed Canada Research Chairs at 33 PSE institutions across the country. The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) also announced today more than $3 million in new funding for research infrastructure that will support the latest appointments to the Research Chairs. As part of the CFI announcement, Canada has also committed an extra $1 million through the Infrastructure Operating Fund, which helps PSE institutions with the incremental operating and maintenance costs associated with the new infrastructure.

TCS Insights: Select educational institutions will benefit from the Canadian government’s continued dedication to research development. Through increased funding towards research infrastructure, these institutions will have what it takes to further their studies and benefit students as well as the general public.
