The Government of Canada is making strategic investments in scientific research infrastructure to support the competitiveness of Canada’s natural resources industries, create jobs and to support Canada’s transition to a low-carbon economy.
An investment of C$3.3 million ($2.5 million) at the Laurentian Forestry Centre in Quebec City will ensure that the scientists and researchers who work at the facility can continue their cutting-edge work in forest pest management, forest regeneration and climate change research, among other projects.
The funding will be used to upgrade laboratories and equipment and to install energy-efficient lighting.
Funding for this investment is provided through the Government’s first Budget, which allocated S$140 million ($107.7 million) to support science, research and innovation — the pillars of strong and advanced economies — through improvements to federal laboratories and other federal assets.
The Laurentian Forestry Centre is one of Natural Resources Canada’s five forestry research centres across the country.
