Canada's Brightest Up-and-Coming Researchers Honoured at 4th Annual Mitacs Awards Reception

From developing a first-of-its-kind innovation that is helping aerial surveillance missions operate more efficiently, to creating new policies that will provide pre-migration training for Chinese immigrants, five researchers from across Canada were recognized last night for their efforts in advancing industry innovation, creating new jobs, and transforming the lives of Canadians.

Each of the students received an award at the 4th Annual Mitacs Awards Reception, held to honour the amazing contributions of these emerging researchers, who have participated in Mitacs programs aimed at fostering research and innovation - as well as forging stronger bonds between academia and businesses across Canada.
