Overview of Phase 2 Funding


Compared to Phase 1, OFI’s next phase will support fewer projects but will allow for more resources per project. In Phase 2, OFI expects to fund two to five large projects — consortia representing academic, government, business, Indigenous and international researchers, Indigenous leaders and coastal community members.

OFI expects to fund consortia from a total envelope of about C$16 million, such that each research project should receive an average of approximately C$1 million per year for four years (all projects are expected to be completed in 2023). Please note: OFI expects successful applicants to leverage OFI’s investment with partner funds up to 1:1, with a target of 10% cash contributions in combined total from all partners across the project.


To qualify, each consortia research project must be led by a principal investigator (PI) who is a faculty or staff member at Dalhousie University, Memorial University of Newfoundland, or the University of Prince Edward Island.
