User News: Account Renewals Open for 2021


Compute Canada’s annual Account Renewal season will run from May 5 to June 15, 2021. If you have an active account, you should receive an email notification directing you to  

  • If you created your account after January 1, 2021, you do not have to renew it at this time. 
  • Only accounts created before that date must be renewed. However, you still need to accept the new policies. 
  • If you created your account after January 1, you will receive an email with more details around May 11.

Please note that the Canadian Common CV application will be unavailable from 8p.m. EDT on May 7, 2021 until 9a.m. EDT on May 10, 2021, due to scheduled maintenance.

If you no longer need your Compute Canada account, then no action is required from you and you can simply let your account expire.

The annual renewal of all user accounts is essential in order to collect the information required by our granting agencies and to deactivate accounts that are no longer in use. Thank you for taking the time to renew your account.For more information on 2021 Account Renewals, visit the Account Renewals FAQ page or contact
