Extension Requests

The Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance is committed to ensuring projects are delivered appropriately and on time; however, in extenuating circumstances, extension requests will be considered. Extension requests should be requested as soon as reasonably possible and before the current end date of the project.

Specifically, the Alliance also recognizes that research activities may be delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To request an extension for Alliance-funded research (Tier 1, Tier 2, Gryphon’s LAAIR and KTT programs), please follow the steps below. If you have any questions, please contact the Research Program Coordinators at rescoord@uoguelph.ca.
