CFI Cyber-infrastructure Initiative

The CFI Cyber-infrastructure Initiative seeks to provide Canadian institutions and their researchers with the infrastructure required to conduct ground-breaking data-intensive and computationally challenging research in areas of strategic importance. To this end, the initiative offers an opportunity for:


  • The Compute Canada community to propose a set of capabilities and services that will meet the needs of Canadian researchers conducting data-intensive and computationally challenging research over the next five years; and
  • Institutions and their researchers to come together to propose cyber-infrastructure projects designed to create tailored and shared integrated datasets, data repositories or research data centres that will enable cutting-edge research on significant scientific, social and economic questions. These data-rich infrastructure resources could include the organization and integration of large and sometimes highly complex datasets in a research field as well as the development of analytical tools to fully exploit these datasets.


CFI has issued a consultation paper regarding this initiative.

CFI will also be holding a series of information and consultation sessions on its proposed cyber-infrastructure initiative on Tuesday June 10th in MDCL 3024 from 10:00am to noon.
