Compute Canada Awards of Excellence


As a national organization with a membership that includes more than 37 research universities, Compute Canada has access to a wealth of expertise, drawn from highly trained people and from research institutions across the country.

More than 200 experts and support personnel are distributed from coast to coast. These experts are employed by a university, Compute Canada, or one of Compute Canada’s four regional partners ACENET, Calcul Québec, Compute Ontario and WestGrid, and help Canada’s research community achieve bigger, better, and faster results. They are undoubtedly Compute Canada’s greatest resource.

Compute Canada’s Awards of Excellence is held annually to recognize those that have gone above and beyond. Ultimately, their commitment to excellence has resulted in significant impacts to research programs across Canada.
