TRIUMF is proposing to build a 50 MeV electron linac as a driver to produce radioactive ion beams through photofission. The present design calls for the use of nine-cell 1.3 GHz Tesla type cavities. A 1.3 GHz Superconducting RF (SRF) program has been initiated with the goal to produce and test one nine cell cavity by the end of 2009. The program will utilize the existing clean room and SRF test facilities that support the ISAC-II heavy ion superconducting linac. A vertical cryostat has been modified with a new insert to allow single cell testing. Pumps for 2 K sub-atmospheric operation have been tested. A single cell fabrication program is being initiated with a local company. A RRR measurement program is on-going to test cavity welds. The goal of the 1.3 GHz upgrade is to not only produce cavities for the in house project but to broaden TRIUMF's technical base for future potential collaborations. The paper will report the progress and plans of the 1.3 GHz SRF program.
