The department is a member of PIMS, the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), which was created in 1996 by the community of mathematical scientists in Alberta and British Columbia. It has subsequently extended to Washington State, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The PIMS mandate is to promote research in the mathematical sciences; to facilitate the training of highly-qualified personnel; to enrich public awareness of and education in the mathematical sciences; and to create mathematical partnerships with similar organizations in other countries (with a particular focus on the Pacific Rim). PIMS funding includes Collaborative Research Groups, Post-Doctoral Fellowships, and individual events on a competitive basis.
