The Canada 150 Research Chairs Program, announced in Budget 2017, invests $117.6 million to enhance Canada’s reputation as a global centre for science, research and innovation excellence, in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
The program builds on the successes achieved through other federal investments in the Canada Research Chairs Program, the Canada Excellence Research Chairs Program, and the Canada First Research Excellence Fund. It provides Canadian universities with a one-time investment to attract top-tier, internationally based scholars and researchers (including Canadian expatriates) to Canada.
The program’s key objectives are to:
- strengthen Canada’s research capacity through the recruitment and retention of top-tier, internationally based scholars and researchers;
- enhance Canada’s reputation as a global centre for science, research and innovation excellence;
- improve universities’ capacity to generate and apply new knowledge; and
- improve the training and development of highly qualified research personnel.
