Appointments to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada
“I welcome the returning and newly appointed council members to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. This impressive list of diverse candidates will help the council further its support for the social scientists and scholars who are pushing the boundaries of knowledge and helping us better understand the world around us.”
– The Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities
SSHRC’s governing council promotes and assists research and scholarship in the social sciences and humanities. It meets regularly to set policy and program priorities and allocate budgets.
In 2016, the Government of Canada adopted a new approach to Governor in Council appointments. This approach strives for gender parity and is supported by an open, transparent and merit-based selection process: one that will result in the recommendation of exceptionally competent candidates who truly reflect Canada's diversity.
The terms of these appointments are staggered between two and three years’ duration.
