November 07, 2022

Announced today by the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, 15 McGill researchers received a total of $3.9 million from the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s John R. Evans Leaders Fund (CFI JELF). Across 40 Canadian institutions, Champagne announced $64 million to support 251 research infrastructure projects. This enables McGill to remain internationally competitive in areas of research and technology development that align with the university’s strategic priorities. McGill attracts students from over 150 countries around the world, its 12,000 international students making up 30% of the student body. Over half of McGill students claim a first language other than English, including approximately 20% of our students who say French is their mother tongue.

Announced today by the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, 15 McGill researchers received a total of $3.9 million from the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s John R. Evans Leaders Fund (CFI JELF). The Quebec government will provide matching funds for these awards. Across 40 Canadian institutions, Champagne announced $64 million to support 251 research infrastructure projects.

CFI’s JELF was created to help institutions recruit and retain outstanding researchers and to support them to build or acquire the necessary tools or infrastructure to lead cutting-edge research programs. This enables McGill to remain internationally competitive in areas of research and technology development that align with the university’s strategic priorities.

“Each of the fifteen projects funded today are excellent examples of how strategic investment in university infrastructure and cutting-edge instruments benefit the public,” said Martha Crago, Vice-Principal, Research, and Innovation. “The Canada Foundation for Innovation together with the Government of Quebec has ensured McGill’s researchers have what they need to push the frontiers of knowledge and address global challenges, such as those posed by complex and chronic diseases.”
