    The Knowledge Infrastructure Program is an important element of Canada's Economic Action Plan, announced on January 27, 2009. It provides up to $2 billion to support infrastructure enhancement at universities and colleges.

    Investments made through the Program will not only generate economic benefits and support job creation, they will enhance research capacity, support the attraction of new students and provide a better educational experience for the highly skilled workers of tomorrow.
