Funding awarded will advance next-generation cutting-edge Canadian research and innovation

May 31, 2024 – Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – Crown-Indigenous Relations

Achieving breakthroughs in research and science in Canada requires modern, high-quality facilities and equipment. These laboratories and research centers are the birthplace of medical and scientific breakthroughs that solve real-world problems and create future economic opportunities.

Today, the Honorable Gary Anandasangaree, Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations, on behalf of the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, the Honorable François-Philippe Champagne, highlighted the funding provided in the 2024 budget which will support innovation at the Canadian Light Source Inc. and the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization at the University of Saskatchewan.

As part of Budget 2024, the Government of Canada is investing $83.5 million over three years, starting in 2026–27, to support the Canadian Light Source. It is a unique facility of its kind in Canada, where a synchrotron radiation source allows scientists and researchers to examine microscopic matter. This specialized infrastructure contributes to breakthroughs in areas such as climate change, from the development of climate-resilient crops to eco-friendly mining processes.

Budget 2024 also invests $30 million over three years, starting in 2024–25, in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization. This funding will complete the critical infrastructure that makes the organization the Canadian Center for Pandemic Research and a global leader in infectious disease research and vaccine development for humans and animals. This investment will study high-risk pathogens to support the development of vaccines and therapeutics, a key pillar of Canada’s biomanufacturing and life sciences strategy.

In Canada, world-class research facilities play a vital role in developing solutions to major challenges and establishing a resilient and sustainable future. Investments in science and research infrastructure drive innovation and help attract and train the next generation of scientific talent, which will help create a better future for people in Canada and around the world .
