Science plays a key role in supporting a vibrant society and a thriving economy in Canada. Scientific advances, from medical breakthroughs to insights that keep our environment clean, improve the health and well-being of Canadians. From fundamental research to the development of real-world applications, science creates jobs, stimulates economic growth and spurs innovation.
Laboratories Canada is a 25-year strategy that will deliver on its vision to strengthen federal science in Canada. Budget 2018 launched the first phase of this strategy with an investment of $2.8 billion to support federal scientists with the important work they do for Canada.
The strategy signals a forward-looking approach to science planning by fostering innovation and collaboration in world-class facilities. The renewed facilities will house modern laboratories and collaborative spaces enabled with information technology tailored to meet the needs of federal scientists, as well as being environmentally sustainable and accessible.
The strategy will increase the government’s ability to attract a diverse range of talented scientists to work alongside federal leaders, while ensuring the government remains at the cutting edge of research and regulatory enforcement. It will also spark innovative ways of doing research, drive economic growth and deliver real results for Canadians.
