Partners & Funders

In partnership with Compute Canada and CANARIE, which operate the national High Performance Computing infrastructure and ultra-high speed backbone network, C3G also facilitates access to significant computing resources to accelerate genomic analyses.


Genome Canada

Genome Canada is a not-for-profit organization, funded by the Government of Canada. It act as a catalyst for developing and applying genomics+ and genomic-based technologies to create economic and social benefits for Canadians.

Ontario Genomics

Ontario Genomics is a publicly-funded not-for-profit organization that works with companies, researchers, and policymakers to support the early stages of moving genomics technologies from the lab to solve real world problems in the clinic and industry.

Génome Québec

Génome Québec contributes to strengthening the competitiveness of the genomics innovation system in order to maximize its socioeconomic impact in Québec, by funding major genomic research initiatives and putting in place the tools necessary for scientific and strategic development in the field.


CANARIE operates and evolves the national backbone of Canada’s ultra-high-speed National Research and Education Network (NREN), connecting to 12 provincial and territorial partner networks. This world-class 10 gigabit per second network is critical infrastructure supporting today’s data-intensive, globally collaborative research.

Compute Canada

Compute Canada, in partnership with regional organizations ACENET, Calcul Québec, Compute Ontario and WestGrid, leads the acceleration of research innovation by deploying state-of-the-art advanced research computing (ARC) systems, storage and software solutions.


McGill University

With some 300 buildings, 40,000 students, 250,000 living alumni, and a reputation for excellence that reaches around the globe, McGill has carved out a spot among the world’s greatest universities.

Sick Kids

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), affiliated with the University of Toronto, is Canada’s most research-intensive hospital and the largest centre dedicated to improving children’s health in the country. As innovators in child health, SickKids improves the health of children by integrating care, research and teaching.

McGill Genome Centre

The McGill Genome Centre provides Canadian and international researchers with high-throughput technologies and cutting-edge approaches to enable next-generation genomic studies. Our Centre addresses key challenges in harnessing the power of next-generation sequencing (NGS) into innovation in biomedicine and the life sciences.

The Canadian Centre for Computational Genomics (C3G) has partnered with the
Goodman Cancer Research Centre (GCRC) to setup and operate a bioinformatics hub at the GCRC.
