Government of Canada


The Government of Canada provides federal research funding support through three agencies:

  • Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)
  • Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)
  • Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)

Funding for non citizens are restricted to research conducted in Canada; Canadian citizens and permanent residents may use grant funding to conduct research outside of Canada.

Open Access Policy: The three funding agencies have the same open access policy for results generated from their funded research: i.e. results arising from Agency-supported research are freely accessible online within 12 months of publication. In addition, costs associated with open access publishing are considered by the Agencies to be eligible grant expenses.
