46 community-based research partnerships receive federal funding

The Government of Canada is investing $19.2M in 46 community-based research partnerships. The funding comes from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council in collaboration with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, which will provide funding for health-focused projects. Academic institutions and non-academic organizations will partner to co-create new knowledge, build capacity, and mobilize knowledge on issues relating to systemic racism and discrimination. Examples of the funded projects include York University Assistant Professor Akolisa Ufodike’s project on barriers that keep Black people from pursuing business and McGill University Associate Professor Zoua Vang’s project on anti-Indigenous racism and maternal and child healthcare for Inuit people.
