Canada announces $102M for new, renewed chairs at 35 Canadian research institutions

The Government of Canada has announced the latest round of new and renewed Canada Research Chairs. With a $102M investment, Canada has announced 119 CRCs at 35 Canadian research institutions. The investments will allow researchers to continue to contribute to global discussions in a variety of topics, such as economics, viral vectors and vaccines, and the Indigenization of higher education. Dwayne Donald, a Cree educator and one of the University of Alberta’s newest CRCs, will be working with teachers to introduce locally rooted concepts of Indigenous wisdom to the classroom in four communities. At Thompson Rivers University, Dr Mukwa Musayett’s Tier 2 CRC position has been renewed, which will allow Musayett to continue her research on the topic of Indigenizing higher education.
