The broad purpose of this fund is to encourage Canadian academics to undertake projects of relevance to accounting academic or professional communities. The research under this program need not lead to publication in a scholarly journal, although it may lead to one or more such publications. The research project may result in a report that is both useful to practitioners and provides background in an area that could be the subject of further academic exploration.
This funding opportunity is expected to:
- Generate preliminary observations, data or knowledge into the potential benefits and harms of cannabis and/or cannabis use
- Support projects which have the potential to generate high impact results and/or innovative research proposals, research tools, techniques, devices, inventions or methodologies
- Facilitate consideration and application of new evidence to inform ongoing and future development of policies, practices and programs related to cannabis
Connection Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Connection program. They support events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives. These events and activities represent opportunities to exchange knowledge and to engage on research issues of value to those participating. Events and outreach activities funded by a Connection Grant may often serve as a first step toward more comprehensive and longer-term projects potentially eligible for funding through other SSHRC funding opportunities listed in SSHRC's Funding search tool.
Connection Grants support workshops, colloquiums, conferences, forums, summer institutes, or other events or outreach activities that facilitate:
- disciplinary and/or interdisciplinary exchanges in the humanities and social sciences;
- scholarly exchanges between those working in the social sciences and humanities and those working in other research fields;
- intersectoral exchanges between academic researchers in the humanities and social sciences and researchers and practitioners from the public, private and/or not-for-profit sectors; and/or
- international research collaboration and scholarly exchanges with researchers, students and non-academic partners from other countries.
Visiting scholars and researchers in mathematics and related sciences make important contributions to the intellectual life of the Fields Institute. If you are not applying to participate in a thematic or focus program, you can apply for a visiting scholar stay at the Fields Institute. Visitors are welcome to register for on-site courses and events, attend seminars and meet/collaborate with other visitors.

The Northern Research Supplements (NRS) Program has been established to augment and promote Canadian university-based northern research and training. The main purpose of the Northern Research Supplements program is to recognize the added costs unique to conducting research in the Canadian North.
Postdoctoral Enrichment Program (PDEP) provides a total of $60,000 over three years to support the career development activities for underrepresented minority postdoctoral fellows in a degree-granting institution (an institution includes its affiliated graduate and medical schools, hospitals and research institutions) in the United States or Canada whose training and professional development are guided by mentors committed to helping them advance to stellar careers in biomedical or medical research.
Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) will co-fund a CID grant focused on studying innovative ways to improve care for older adults living with frailty.
Proposals for this CID grant must:
- Focus on older adults living with frailty.
- Assess frailty using an appropriate published frailty assessment tool (e.g. clinical frailty scale, frailty index) appropriate for the care setting.
- Directly address at least one of the citizen-identified research priorities established by CFN using the James Lind Alliance process. Click here for the top ten priorities.
- Fit within CFN’s strategic priorities. Click here for more information.
- Include participation of at least one highly qualified personnel trainee.
