Annual & corporate reports

Each year, our corporate plan highlights our activities for the year ahead and our annual report looks back at the past year’s accomplishments. Guiding it all is our five-year strategic roadmap.

Strategic roadmap

This strategic roadmap lays out the directions that the CFI will adopt to meet the challenges of today’s difficult economic environment and help boost Canada’s capacity for innovation.

Corporate plans

Our corporate plans chart the course for program delivery, financial accountability, communications and outreach activities, evaluation of outcomes and impacts, and corporate services over the coming fiscal year. This annual plan is a way for us to be accountable to elected representatives, government officials, and to all Canadians about how we use public funds, and to be transparent about our activities for the coming year.

Annual reports

This was a milestone year for the CFI, and for Canadian research. That is because we marked 20 years since the creation of the CFI, which has profoundly transformed how research is undertaken in Canada. The ultimate measure of our achievements continues to be the difference our research endeavours make in the quality of life of Canadians. That research builds communities is a simple truth we see reflected in our work every day, and which was brought into focus through the stories we told to celebrate our 20th anniversary.
