Dear Colleagues,

Please find attached the most recent update document from Carmen Charette, Senior Vice-President of the Canada Foundation for Innovation concerning CFI programs. It contains important information about the current LEF/NIF Competition, in addition to updates on other CFI programs.

The Research Advisory Board was unanimous in its view that the outcome of the LEF/NIF competition should be based on merit. We shall of course need to ensure that this approach is consistent with provincial matching requirements. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have either through email or at the next PDAD&C meeting.

Best wishes,


John R.G. Challis
