Canada Research Coordinating Committee

The Canada Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC) plays an important role in reinvigorating Canada's support for science to meet the current and future needs of the country's scientists, scholars and students.

The committee was created to improve the coordination efforts of Canada's granting agencies—the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research—as well as the Canada Foundation for Innovation.
