Support for COVID-19 research projects

Compute Canada resources for COVID-19 research

Canada’s research community is mobilizing to help address the current COVID-19 crisis and the Compute Canada Federation (CCF) is providing advanced research computing (ARC) support for COVID-19 focused research. This support could include:

  • Providing access to cloud resources, high-performance clusters, storage or boosting your job priority
  • Consulting in high-performance computing (HPC), data management, data analysis, machine learning, and visualization
  • Connecting you to Canadian scientists from other research areas and institutions to further collaborations.

To access these resources, please email with “COVID-19” in the subject line. Include a brief explanation of the type of support you need and a brief description (2-3 sentences) of how your project relates to COVID-19.

We understand that users with Resource Allocation Competition allocations (current and new ones starting April 1, 2020) may choose to repurpose the allocations for COVID-19 research. We would ask that you reach out, using the email address provided above, and let us know your plans to enable us to most efficiently manage demands on our resources.

Please share this information with your colleagues, especially those who are not current Compute Canada users but could benefit from ARC resources. 

For more information on other COVID-19 resources and support available to Canadian research projects, please visit this page we created as a brief summary list
