The Government of Canada and Government of Ontario have announced funding that will support postsecondary research, innovation, and development projects. ON will provide over $70.4M to 176 projects to cover costs associated with research operations and infrastructure, which include renovations and equipping facilities with new technology. Through competitions such as the College and Community Innovation program and the College-Industry Innovation Fund, Canada will be providing over $38M to colleges, cégeps, and polytechnics across the country to support partnerships with local companies and community organizations. “We proudly support our outstanding research talent as well as our small- and medium-sized businesses, which are the engines of our economy,” said François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry. “This will help Canada’s colleges to work collaboratively with local companies by bringing researchers, students, and industry partners together to address local challenges and create jobs and growth here in Canada.” ON | Canada (NSERC) (National)
