Talk Abstract: 

The Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) is one of the few sites on Maunakea that may be reused provided the footprint does not change. I will give a talk about the current designs and plans for an upgrade of our 3.6-M telescope to an 11.5-M telescope and the instruments being designed for use at the telescope based on the requirements of the astronomical community.
