Minister of Science announces appointments to Board of Canada Foundation for Innovation

DRUCKEN

Investments in research infrastructure strengthen science and help attract the brightest talent

OTTAWA, Oct. 11, 2018 /CNW/ - In Canada, we know that diversity is a source of our strength. We believe that diverse perspectives—whether in our communities and schools or our businesses and laboratories—lead to greater knowledge, innovation and growth for all.

This value is true as well in our governing bodies: the boards that oversee public institutions committed to serving Canadians. Today, the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport, announced four new appointments and one reappointment to the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) Board of Directors following an open, transparent and merit-based selection process:

  • Dr. Ronald Layden, President and CEO, Tidal Pool Ventures Inc.
  • Dr. Catherine Aczel Boivie, CEO, Strategic Technology Leadership Corporation
  • Ms. Lynda Brown-Ganzert, Founder and CEO, Curatio (reappointment)
  • Dr. John MacLaine Kelly, President and CEO, KeliRo Company Inc.
  • Dr. Mamdouh Shoukri, President Emeritus, York University

The CFI is an independent organization created through federal legislation in 1997 to support advanced research infrastructure. The CFI provides funding for state-of-the-art facilities and equipment that increase Canada's capability to carry out high-quality research.

"I welcome the returning and newly appointed members of the Board of Directors of the Canada Foundation for Innovation.

Quick facts

  • The CFI Board of Directors is made up of 13 individuals, six of whom—including the Chair—are appointed by the Governor in Council on the recommendation of the Minister. The Board makes final decisions on projects to be funded and approves the CFI's annual plans and objectives, reviewing the outcomes of these objectives every year.
  • By providing strategic direction and oversight, the Board of Directors supports the CFI in its mandate to increase Canada's capability to carry out important world-class scientific research and technology development that lead to economic growth and job creation through innovation.
  • Budget 2018 proposed an investment of $763 million in the CFI over five years, including $160 million for increased support to Canada's nationally important research facilities through the CFI's Major Science Initiatives Fund. Additionally, the Government of Canada proposed to establish permanent funding for the CFI at an ongoing level of $462 million per year by 2023–24.
