To promote Canadian excellence in particle physics research and advanced education.

To maximise the impact of Canadian particle physicists by employing an outstanding group of IPP research scientists playing key roles in our highest priority projects, organising long-range planning that articulates the community’s scientific priorities and maintaining close ties to the Canadian particle physics laboratories.

To serve as the focal point for particle physics activities in Canada and a point of contact for our partners in laboratories and universities around the world.

To train highly qualified personnel, expose the next generation of Canadians to the opportunities in particle physics world-wide and maintain an active outreach programme to all stakeholders including the broader Canadian public.
