COVID-19 Update for April 18, 2020 – 2:00pm

April 18, 2020

Funding for COVID-19 Research

Premier Doug Ford’s Saturday briefing focused on an additional $20 million for the COVID-19 Rapid Research Fund. Ford, alongside Colleges and Universities Minister Ross Romano, announced the funding to increase Ontario’s research capacity, with the Premier noting, “the world needs a vaccine, and there is no reason why that vaccine can’t be found right here in Ontario.”

Proposals are being accepted until April 24, 2020 and the province is particularly interested in those that are highly feasible with achievable results within one year or a maximum of two years.
