The Ontario Research Fund - Research Infrastructure (ORF-RI) program ensures that Ontario's publicly funded research institutes continue to have competitive, state-of-the-art infrastructure to engage in world-leading research and technology development. The Small Infrastructure Funding Component of the ORF-RI program assists institutions in attracting, retaining and developing leading researchers by supporting the acquisition and renewal of state-of-the-art research equipment at Ontario's publicly funded research institutes. The ORF will contribute a maximum of 40% towards the total eligible costs, and the research institution is responsible for obtaining at least 60% from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (through the Leaders Opportunity Fund), any private funding partners, and its own resources.

Applications for ORF-RI small infrastructure funds should be submitted to the ORF within three weeks following the corresponding CFI submission date for Leaders Opportunity Fund (JELF) projects. For information on CFI's critical dates, please refer to the Canada Foundation for Innovation web site.
