Funding the future of CRDCN

In the coming weeks we will be submitting the final renewal proposal to CFI, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). This decision will dictate a great deal of our funding between 2023 and 2029, and is crucial to the sustained operations of CRDCN – including access to the Statistics Canada microdata in the RDCs.  

To aid in our renewal proposal, we have held a town hall and conducted a survey to hear about what is important to our research community. We want to thank all of you who took part, your help is invaluable in drafting our proposal and carefully charting the course for the future of the Network.  

We will report further once the proposal has been submitted and a decision has been made.
