Research in progress

Since the NFID is a “demonstration” project, CAFC and the NFID partners were delighted to fund 10 research teams from across Canadian Universities to conduct studies using the NFID data. The studies help answer important questions and demonstrate the range of the database. You can find below a list of the research projects and the links to access them.
