Through this 2023 MSI Fund competition, the CFI will continue to contribute to O&M needs of facilities of national importance for which the loss or absence of support would represent a serious setback for Canada. This includes facilities which may not have been previously funded through the program, provided these are successful in meeting the eligibility and assessment criteria established for this competition. Funding provided by the CFI will complement existing O&M resources to address the operational needs of the successful facilities.

Submission to this competition is a two-step process requiring an Expression of Interest (EOI) and a Notice of Intent (NOI) submitted to Strategic Research Institutional Initiatives (SIRI), siri@mun.ca, prior to submission to CFI. The submission of full proposals for the February 8, 2022 deadline will be by invitation-only, based on CFI’s merit review of the received NOIs.
