Five-Year Plan 2020-2025

TRIUMF's core operations revolve around a five-year planning cycle. This is articulated in a Five-Year Plan (5YP), a report that defines TRIUMF’s mission and vision, communicates the lab’s goals and priorities, and lays out an action plan for the specified planning cycle and beyond. The 2015-2020 5YP started April 1, 2015, and ends March 31, 2020.

It is now time to proceed along the path to envisioning, developing, and sharing the next 5YP for 2020-2025. This webpage serves as the primary online resource for information about the 2020-2025 5YP development process and the various consultations with stakeholders.

Ultimately, the proposed 5YP is transmitted to the Government of Canada by the Director of TRIUMF on behalf of laboratory's member universities. It is TRIUMF's commitment that the plan be developed in a transparent, open, deliberative process that puts forward the strongest possible program for Canada under realistic resource constraints.

TRIUMF’s Policy and Planning Advisory Committee (PPAC) now available

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to thank you all for your strong engagement in the consultation process for the TRIUMF Five-Year Plan 2020-25.

The response of the community to our call for proposals to Policy and Planning Advisory Committee (PPAC) has been overwhelming and PPAC reviewed 83 submissions during its November 24-25, 2017 meeting.

We would like to express our gratitude for this high level of engagement and we would like to thank all PPAC members for their tremendous efforts in reviewing the submissions.

PPAC submitted its report to TRIUMF on December 19, 2017 and after an initial review of the report, we are making the report available to our community.

It can be downloaded here (PDF).

The main messages TRIUMF is taking away from the PPAC report are:

  • Prioritize ARIEL and IAMI as foundational for the future of TRIUMF
  • Focus on the existing multi-disciplinary, high-impact science portfolio, including strong on-site and off-site components
  • Make balanced investments into core infrastructure, science support, and selected new opportunities, to maximize the benefit from ARIEL and IAMI
  • Position TRIUMF for its long-term future by further developing particularly promising new ideas without affecting the efforts on ARIEL and IAMI

 The PPAC recommendations will be an important input into the development of the TRIUMF Five-Year Plan 2020-25.

Please stay tuned and engaged in the forthcoming consultation of the main strategic thrusts of the TRIUMF Five-Year Plan 2020-25. We’ll reach out with further information in the near future.

Dr. Reiner Kruecken

Deputy Director, TRIUMF
