Canada Research Chairs

Canada Research Chairs are funded by the Government of Canada to drive Canadian research and development excellence, to create world-class centres of research, and to enhance Canada's competitiveness in the global knowledge-based economy. The Canada Research Chairs Program invests approximately $265 million per year to attract and retain some of the world’s most accomplished and promising minds. Chairholders aim to achieve research excellence in engineering and the natural sciences, health sciences, humanities, and social sciences.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the Canada Research Chairs Program

The University of Windsor takes great pride in providing all employees with an equitable, inclusive and diverse environment.  This commitment extends to the CRCs that have been allocated to UWindsor, as we fully support the research excellence and research leadership UWindsor’s CRCs provide to the institution. The University is fully committed to ensuring all CRC Action Plan Objectives and Targets continue to be met. We are on target and there are currently no gaps noted for 2018/19 or 2019/20.  New initiatives outlined in the CRC Action Plan will augment and further support existing institutional equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives to continue to support CRCs as renewals, new allocations and phase-outs may occur through the CRC Program.
