Funding of PEARL

In November 2017, Ministers McKenna and Duncan announced that the Government of Canada would be providing additional funding to the PEARL facility to enable it to keep operating until the Fall of 2019. We are pleased to report that the negotiations on this funding have been completed and the funds have been made available. The result is that PEARL will continue to operate until the Fall of 2019. The PEARL team are already seeking a source for funding beyond Fall 2019 and are encouraged by the additional funding for science announced in the 2018 budget. We await the call for proposals for these funds so that we can continue this important work.
