Mitacs has set aside a limited number of internship units to support research that directly aligns with the Federal and Provincial governments’ objectives at the moment:
- Provincial priorities: https://www.ontario.ca/page/how-your-organization-can-help-fight-coronavirus
- Federal priorities: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-infection/canadas-reponse/government-canada-takes-action-covid-19.html
If the partner is a small to mid-size enterprise (SME) they can get a discounted financial contribution: $3,750 + HST cash instead of $7,500 and Mitacs will provide the remaining $11,250 per unit for the $15K total. Mitacs has quick turnaround times for applications.
If you have a project that may fall in line with these priorities, please contact Katie Facecchia, 519-560-1582, email@example.com for assistance.
