Our government's efforts to invest in new research and innovation

Dear Residents:


I am writing to you to talk about our government's efforts to invest in new research and innovation projects‎ that will lead to new discoveries and in turn help everyone in their everyday lives.


This year our government is investing in 53 projects across 17 leading institutions through the Ontario Research Fund. These investments will help cover the cost of building or renovating and equipping facilities to conduct large-scale, collaborative ‎research projects. This will allow researchers to develop new products or services, including new treatments and cures for illnesses while supporting high quality jobs. Some of these initiatives include:


1) The University Health Network's Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Precision Medicine Program, which will advance knowledge of genetic and non-genetic aspects of cancer.


2) RoboDrive, a research facility and test track for autonomous vehicles at the University of Waterloo.


3) Carleton University's Centre for Advanced Building Envelope Research, which aims to develop new insulation technologies that will reduce heat loss in Canadian homes and buildings.


Investing in research and innovation is part of Ontario's plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change.


Yours Truly,



Lorenzo Berardinetti
