Carries a grant of up to $1M over five years for personal university-based research administered by the institution.

Eligibility: The nominee must be a scientist or engineer employed at a Canadian university, Canadian federal or provincial government lab or private firm active in Canada whose research is primarily based in the fields of the natural sciences and/or engineering.
