The story of discovery at Canadian universities is the story of scientific research that saves lives, technological innovations that help businesses compete, social science research that informs public policy, humanities research that contributes to our arts and culture, and new ideas that improve quality of life at home and around the world.
Today, more than ever, university research matters to Canadians. The importance of university research to Canadian innovation and quality of life is reflected in investments by the federal government and other external funding partners. Funding from the federal research granting agencies – the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research – not only supports graduate and post-graduate scholarships, but also allows faculty members to engage students in their research.
