The University of Guelph is proud to partner with the Canadian Research Chairs program, NSERC Industrial Research Chairs program, and other government agencies, foundations, corporations, and individuals to attract elite researchers to the University. These researchers carry out regionally, nationally, and internationally significant research in our areas of strategic importance.
Guelph researchers are passionately engaged in discovery and knowledge translation to further the University's commitment to making a difference and to better the lives of people everywhere. Regardless of discipline and orientation, research is now inherently collaborative across disciplines and across countries - research knows no boundaries at Guelph.
The agreement between the University of Guelph and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) has tremendous economic impact, returning more than a billion dollars a year to the province.
