A major source of funding for Canadian post-secondary research is the Tri-Council Agencies: the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).
Following CASA’s advocacy efforts to increase research funding, Budget 2016 saw the largest investment in Canada’s Tri-Council Agencies in over a decade. A total of $141 million was allocated to support research and innovation, ensuring students are empowered to conduct top-tier research.
