The Canada First Research Excellence Fund is administered by the Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat (TIPS).
TIPS asks eligible institutions to nominate a single point of contact to interact with TIPS. Through these designated contacts, TIPS will keep institutions informed of updated program information. Please check with your institution’s designated contact (usually a senior administrator, such as the vice-president of research) for the latest program updates and answers to frequently asked questions.
To avoid duplication of information and possibly conflicting interpretations,
If you believe that your institution meets the eligibility criteria of the program, but you have not yet been contacted by TIPS and would like to receive updated program information, please send an email to the general inquiries address provided below.
