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, communicate 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 completes 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 Five-Year Plan 2020-2025 Community Consultation – Save the Date
To the TRIUMF Community,
TRIUMF is starting to prepare its Five-Year Plan 2020-2025, a report that will define TRIUMF’s mission and vision, communicate the lab’s goals and priorities, and lay out an action plan for the period 2020-2025 and beyond.
The Five-Year Plan will underpin TRIUMF’s request for operational funding from the Government of Canada.
The 2020-2025 Five-Year Plan will be shaped in part through broad community consultation, which will have two major elements:
- A series of workshops during this summer’s Science Week to discuss TRIUMF’s scientific priorities and operational objectives for the next Five Year Plan. Science Week will take place at TRIUMF from July 10-15, 2017. Save the date! Details on the format of the workshops will be announced during the next few weeks.
- A formal call for proposals for any and all activities that might involve commitments of TRIUMF resources and expertise during the five years covered by the plan. The exact timeline will be announced in a few weeks, but it will involve a submission deadline in the late summer or early fall, 2017.
TRIUMF’s Policy and Planning Advisory Committee (PPAC) will be responsible for reviewing and analyzing all Five-Year Plan proposals. As part of this process, PPAC will prioritize the submissions and offer recommendations to the TRIUMF Director. Details on the types and format of submissions as well as the submission process will be provided in the forthcoming announcement.
TRIUMF has published a webpage to serve as the primary online resource for information about the 2020-2025 5YP development process and the various consultations with stakeholders. You can access it here, http://www.triumf.ca/FYP2020-25.
