Abstract: The Supernova Legacy Survey (SNLS)1 will discover and obtain g′r′i&38242;z′ lightcurves for more than 700 spectroscopically confirmed Type Ia supernovae (0.3 < z < 0.9) to differentiate between competing s for Dark Energy. We fit the multicolor lightcurves of the candidates to determine which are likely Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) and send them for follow-up spectroscopy to the Keck, VLT, and Gemini telescopes. Here we show the results from Gemini, where we send most of our highest redshift (0.6 < z < 0.9) targets.
