Ontario-China Research and Innovation Fund (OCRIF)

The Ontario-China Research and Innovation Fund (OCRIF) supports scientific and technological collaboration projects between China and Ontario. Offered through a partnership with Ontario’s Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, China's Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE), OCRIF promotes scientific, technological and industrial research and commercialization cooperation.

OCE and MOST will jointly invest up to $2 million ($1 million each) to support strategic bilateral research collaborations.

Ontario funds will be disbursed to successful Ontario applicants by OCE. Successful co-investigators from China will be funded separately by MOST. 

Please note that this program is no longer accepting applications.
