Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science

Ontario Genomics is partly funded by the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science as the province’s only entity focused exclusively on stimulating and nurturing genomics innovation to grow Ontario’s knowledge-based economy.

Since its inception, Ontario Genomics has secured $375.8 million of Genome Canada funding with total budgets (including co-funding) of nearly $1 billion for over 190 Ontario-led genomics research initiatives, which has translated into new discoveries, products and companies.

Ontario Genomics partners with the Ministry to drive system level collaboration and innovation. For instance, Ontario Genomics has initiated the Ontario Personalized Medicine Network (OPMN) to identify a roadmap for the implementation of personalized medicine in the province of Ontario.
