Prime Minister Justin Trudeau defended his government's decision to partner with Huawei to create state-of-the-art computer and electrical technologies at Canadian universities, despite months of criticism from international allies and opposition parties.

Federal agency National Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) has agreed to work with Huawei to fund research, despite national-security concerns from allies such as the US and the UK.

NSERC grants lists money going to 14 different projects which have partnered with Huawei. The sum of the projects totals$4,873,160. Huawei would not put an exact figure on the funding saying only that the sum is "greater than 4.8 million," according to The Globe and Mail.

When pressed on the matter on Friday, Trudeau said that his government would continue to make "the right decisions" for Canadians, saying the decision was made on the "best recommendations of our experts."
