Canada Foundation for Innovation Grants

The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) was built on the ideals of thinking big and investing in areas that matter to Canadians. Since its creation in 1997, the CFI has ensured Canadian researchers have the tools — the cutting-edge labs, facilities and equipment — they need to push the frontiers of knowledge in all disciplines, and to contribute to the full spectrum of research — from discovery to technology development.

CFI funding is awarded through a merit-review process that involves researchers and administrators from research institutions and the private sector.

Within the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, we are targeting campus-based core facilities and shared platforms that benefit large numbers of users. Learn more...
