This talk will be an introduction to the science programme at TRIUMF, Canada’s particle accelerator centre located in Vancouver, and to its relatively new Director who is pleased to be working at a ground level laboratory with windows.

I will outline the various research areas that TRIUMF is currently engaged in both nationally and internationally, and the major new platforms that TRIUMF is developing. These are the ARIEL rare isotope facility, currently in construction and anticipated to be operational in 2026, and the IAMI medical isotope research platform, expected to be operational next year.

TRIUMF is also going through an exercise to develop a 20-year vision of possible future research directions. I will outline the progress in developing this vision, and possible new research areas that TRIUMF may explore. This is a time of change at TRIUMF as a new organisation, and I will outline some of the major changes and effects on the facility.
