ON invests nearly $200M in research, innovation advancement

The Government of Ontario is investing nearly $200M over three years in advancing research and innovation at six research institutes. The institutes receiving this funding include the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research ($144M), the Perimeter Institute ($36M), Ontario Genomics ($5M), Clinical Trials Ontario ($4M), the Fields Institute ($4M), and Compute Ontario ($3M). In addition to supporting the institute’s research, this funding will be used for outreach efforts and the creation of experiential learning opportunities in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields. “This funding will help researchers continue to solve real-world problems, such as making clinical trials timelier and developing tools for earlier cancer diagnosis so Ontarians can live longer and healthier lives,” said ON Minister of Colleges and Universities Jill Dunlop.
