Administering your grant

The Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) administration guide outlines the terms and conditions for administering a CFREF grant.


Noncompliance with these regulations or with current federal research granting agency regulations and requirements may result in the Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat (TIPS) freezing or closing a particular grant account. The Secretariat and/or the granting agencies will promptly report any fraudulent use of CFREF monies to the appropriate legal authorities.


Recipient institutions are expected to follow the public communication guidelines for institutions.
