This release is available in French.

Montral, May 22, 2007 The Honourable Maxime Bernier, Minister of Industry, and Mr. Raymond Bachand, Quebec Minister of Economic Development, Innovation and Export, and Minister of Tourism, along with Dr. Martin Godbout, President and CEO of Genome Canada, Mr. Paul L'Archevque, President and CEO of Gnome Qubec, and Mr. Luc Vinet, Rector of the Universit de Montral, today announced $34.5 million in funding for the International Consortium known as the Public Population Project in Genomics (P3G), which includes the Quebec-based CARTaGENE project. Counting all the contributions from international partners, the total budget of the initiative could reach $64.5 million.

"Our Government is charting a new direction for innovation in Canada with our recently released science and technology strategy Mobilizing Science and Technology to Canada's Advantage. It is a direction that links the energy of our entrepreneurs to the energy of our scientists" said the Honourable Maxime Bernier, Minister of Industry. The inclusion of the CARTaGENE project's expertise in the Consortium places Canada at the forefront of research on population genomics. Already a world leader in population health, Canada will now be able to offer researchers a world-class resource for scientific discovery to improve the health and well-being of people around the world."

Minister Bachand noted the commitment of the Government of Quebec to research, particularly in the cutting-edge field of genomics. "Our genomics researchers rank among world leaders in the development of insight into both environmental and genetic determinants of health," said Minister Bachand. "The funding for P3G/CARTaGENE represents a key effort to support scientific research and innovation in a sector where Quebec excels. This initiative confirms our leadership role, but it also helps t
