Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on 1 November announced funding for construction of the Institute for Advanced Medical Isotopes (IAMI) within the campus of the TRIUMF national particle accelerator at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. TRIUMF is owned and operated as a joint venture by a consortium of universities. With investment from the Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia, and contributions from TRIUMF, the BC Cancer Foundation and the University of British Columbia, the construction of the IAMI facility is valued at CAD31.8 million ($24.3m). With additional equipment and philanthropic funding, the total value of the project will be more than CAD50 million. Ottawa is providing $10.2 million, the provincial government $12.2 million, TRIUMF $5.4 million, and the BC Cancer Foundation and UBC $2 million each. Trudeau said: “We know that for our country to lead in an ever-evolving economy and create the jobs of tomorrow, we have to invest in our scientists and in the institutions that support them.”
