What We Do
Engage in research and development to ensure that cutting edge forensic science is used to deliver services to official investigative agencies and to advance the discipline. We seek to continuously improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our forensic analyses and examinations. Our focus is on transformative technologies and enhancing the objective nature of our work.
HOW DO WE CONDUCT RESEARCH?
The CFS seeks to develop research collaboration with academic institutions, other Ontario Ministries and industry partners who have capacity and expertise to deliver research projects that align with our research priorities. We have human and material resources available to contribute to projects that support our research mandate.
WANT TO BECOME A RESEARCH PARTNER WITH US?
There are two ways to enter into a research partnership with the CFS:
Express interest in a posted proposal by copying the project title into the partnership survey, then completing and submitting the survey. Unassigned CFS research proposals will be posted for at least 30 days to allow partners to express interest in a research collaboration. CFS will evaluate submissions and select the partner best suited to each specific collaboration.
Submit your own research proposal by clicking this link and completing the research partner proposal survey. Such proposals should align with the CFS research priorities outlined below. The CFS R&D Unit will review all such proposals with CFS Section management and/or staff to identify interest and capacity in the proposed collaboration.
