Canada’s next generation of researchers receive new support from the Government of Canada
"Our greatest hope lies with the ambitions of the next generation of Canada’s researchers. Their curiosity and desire to collaborate will lead to new medical treatments, health care programs and social innovations that will strengthen our economy and support a growing middle class. Our government is proud to support them as they gain the skills and experiences needed for the jobs of tomorrow."
- The Honourable Kirsty Duncan
Minister of Science and Sport
"We are giving researchers, students, and fellows the foundation they need to achieve their dreams and come up with the innovations that will drive the economy and help solve the challenges of our time. Our government is proud to support the world’s most promising research talent in Canada. I congratulate the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholars and Banting Postdoctoral Fellows and wish them continued success with their research that will benefit all Canadians."
- The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor
Minister of Health
The Government of Canada made an historic investment of nearly $4 billion in Budget 2018 to support research and the next generation of researchers. This is the single largest investment in discovery research in Canadian history.
Budget 2018 proposed to invest more than $1.7 billion over five years to support researchers through Canada’s granting councils and research institutes. This includes $275 million over five years to support a new tri-council fund, which will help support early career researchers.
Both the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships program and the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program are funded through the three federal research granting agencies: the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). The program is administered through CIHR.
