Navigating Canada's Research Facilities: New CFI Tool
Jul 28, 2014

The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) has launched a new online tool, the Research Facilities Navigator, which lists over 360 laboratory profiles from 63 universities, colleges and research hospitals across Canada. The site serves as a quick search point for researchers and businesses to identify facilities and equipment to advance their research and innovation needs.

The research labs listed on the site span five areas: Engineering, Health, Environment, Science, and Social Sciences and Humanities. Examples of labs include University of Waterloo's FELT lab, a private-public partnership that is outfitted with state-of-the-art display technologies to study new ways of interacting with technology; University of Western Ontario’s Sustainable Archaeology laboratory, which has imaging equipment to visually reconstruct archaeological sites; and UHN’s iDAPT Centre for Rehabilitation Research, which has custom-built immersive environments to recreate challenging environments (eg, the Winter Lab, which simulates snow, ice and wind conditions to safely study fall prevention).

To explore research facilities available across Canada, visit CFI’s Navigator website.
