CFI JELF EOIs now being accepted for internal review

The Office of CREAIT, CRC and CFI Services (CCCS), a unit within the Vice-President (Research) Portfolio, is currently accepting Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s John R. Evans Leaders Fund (CFI JELF).

This fund helps post-secondary institutions attract and retain top researchers through the acquisition of infrastructure to enable cutting-edge research. 

Researchers should note that there are three important upcoming deadlines related to this competition.

  • Aug. 12: Deadline for researchers to confirm proposal eligibility of match funding;
  • Aug. 19: EOIs must be submitted to CCCS by 4 p.m.; and
  • Oct. 15: Deadline for Memorial to submit applications approved during current EOI call to CFI.

Please note: EOIs will be assessed by an internal advisory committee, appointed by the vice-president (research). Assessments will be completed by Sept. 2. Only those EOIs selected by the committee will be eligible to apply for the CFI for its October deadline.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact CCCS before the Aug. 12 and Aug. 19 deadlines for assistance in completing the EOIFurther information is available by emailing
