Federal Funding for U of G Researchers

November 18, 2022

"Collaboration and experimentation across disciplines underscore two University of Guelph Canada Research Chairs (CRC)—one new, the other renewed—recently funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). 

The CRC funding is part of a more than $1-billion federal investment announced by François-Philippe Champagne, minister of innovation, science and industry. The announcement also included SSHRC Insight Development grants; scholarships for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers; Canada Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) Biosciences Research Infrastructure and John R. Evans Leaders funds; and reinvestment in the Canadian Research Data Centre Network and the Research Support Fund

Eleven researchers in the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences (CSAHS), the Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics, and the Ontario Agricultural College will receive a total of $674,972 in Insight Development grants, which support the early development of new research projects. 

More than $275-million worth of funding will support tri-agency scholarships and fellowships across Canada, including more than $4 million for almost 100 U of G graduate students 

Renewed investment in the Canadian Research Data Centre Network, including the Guelph Branch Research Data Centre site, will benefit researchers across Canada with unique access to Statistics Canada census, survey and administrative data."
