The Canada Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC), which includes the presidents of federal granting agencies (SSHRC, NSERC, CIHR, NRC, and CFI), along with the chief science advisor; and the deputy ministers of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Health Canada, has now released the new strategic plan to support Indigenous research and research training:

Setting new directions to support Indigenous research and research training in Canada:
Strategic Plan 2019-2022

The CRCC has worked closely with the First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in the development of this model, which contributes to reconciliation. The strategic plan introduces four new directions:

  • Building relationships with First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples
  • Supporting research priorities of Indigenous Peoples
  • Creating greater funding accessibility to granting agency programs
  • Championing Indigenous leadership, self-determination and capacity building in research
