Since the early 1990s two other research institutes have joined the CRM on the Canadian scene: Toronto's Fields Institute, and the Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences (PIMS). As well as coordinating their scientific activities, the three institutes have worked closely on a variety of initiatives, the most important of which has been the Mathematics of Information Technology and Complex Systems (MITACS,) now called Mprime.
Other initiatives involved these institutes, such as the CRMFields prize awarded in recognition of outstanding accomplishments in the mathematical sciences in Canada. It was created in 1994 and in 2006 became the CRMFieldsPIMS prize. The administrative responsibility for this prize will alternate each year between the three institutes.
The three directors meet on a monthly basis to insure the best coordination of their overall activities and intervene together with the public and granting agencies (NSERC in particular) to promote education and advanced research in mathematics.
