The Government of Canada and the Government of Quebec are investing $11M in a project at the Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Saint-Hyacinthe. The faculty will use the funds to repurpose vacant office spaces and decommissioned labs to consolidate research spaces under the umbrella of the Centre intégré des maladies infectieuses animales (CIMIA). A federal release notes that this investment will allow the institution to better support the scientific community, as well as research and training in animal production and food safety. “Our faculty plays a leading role in Quebec’s agri-food technocity, and upgrading the Centre intégré des maladies infectieuses animales will help strengthen this leadership, benefiting all citizens,” said UMontréal Rector Guy Breton.
