The Tri-Council Agencies, made up of 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 (SSHRC), are a major source of research funding for post-secondary institutions in Canada. Each agency has a specific mandate that defines fundable research areas:


·         CIHR supports programs of research that impact health, and produce more effective health services and products and/or strengthen the Canadian health care system.

·         NSERC supports programs of research primarily based, and that advance knowledge, the natural sciences and engineering.

·         SSHRC supports programs of research primarily based in the social sciences and humanities that advance knowledge of individuals, groups, and societies.


The Research Office for Administration, Development and Support (ROADS) will be holding two drop-in sessions to provide researchers with an opportunity to discuss the mandates, funding opportunities, and policies of the Tri-Council agencies. Researchers who would like more information about the funding policies of the Tri-Council agencies or are unsure to which agency they ought to apply will have an opportunity to speak with, and obtain advice from, Senior Advisors from ROADS.


Additional information about funding sources and opportunities can be found on the ROADS website at
