Compute Canada Federation - Support for COVID-19 Research Projects


Compute Canada Federation (CCF)


Canada’s research community is mobilizing to help address the current COVID-19 crisis and the Compute Canada Federation (CCF) has an important role to play in supporting them in this work.

If researchers could benefit from access to compute resources and support, please reach out to Compute Canada.  Support could include: 

  • providing access to cloud resources, high-performance clusters, storage or boosting job priority;
  • consulting on high-performance computing (HPC), data analysis, machine learning, and visualization; and
  • connecting your researchers to Canadian scientists from other research areas and insitutions to further collaborations.

To access these resources, please email with “COVID-19” in the subject line. 

We understand that users with Resource Allocation Competition allocations may choose to repurpose their allocations for COVID-19 research. If you are doing so, please email the address provided above to inform Compute Canada of your plans so they efficiently manage demands on their resources.

Researchers who are working on COVID-19 may also find these three portals useful: COVID-19 Resources Canada (, ( and CanCOVID (
