Our Investment

Total Research Activity Supported
$362 Million

Since opening our offices in Saskatoon and Winnipeg in 2005, Genome Prairie has been a catalyst for developing the bioeconomy of Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

We are grateful for the financial support provincial governments have provided to date. Together with our partner organizations and co-funders, Genome Prairie has invested about $362 million in 35 genomics projects with industry and academia.



Every $1 invested by the provinces
$7 of Funding is Leveraged

According to independent analysis, for every $1 invested in Genome Prairie by the provinces, $7 of funding is leveraged. 

The longer-term impact of our projects is also measured by the testimonials of companies and academic research programs supported by our activities.
