Funding pulled from Tri-Councils’ Dimensions program

University Affairs reports that the Dimensions pilot project has officially ended after its funding was not renewed by the Government of Canada last year. The project first launched in 2018 with the goal of promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) within Canadian postsecondary institutions and was jointly administered by the Tri-Council (CIHR, NSERC, and SSHRC). In their comments to University Affairs, some participating institutions stated that the pilot program was integral to kickstarting their EDI efforts; others were disappointed that the funding was not renewed. “This is not the time to stop, but rather to continue, and fix well-known, long-standing inequality,” said EDI advocate Dr Kirsty Duncan.
