Postsecondary, research organizations band together to call for improved research funding


The Coalition for Canadian Research is calling on the federal government to increase funding for Canadian research. The coalition”which includes organizations such as Association of Faculty of Medicines of Canada, Canadian Alliance of Student Associations, Canadian Association of University Teachers, U15 Canada, and Universities Canada”pointed to stagnant levels of financial support in its call for urgent change. “All the leading countries in the world are embracing science and research as the way to build a globally competitive, resilient and prosperous society,” said U15 CEO Dr Chad Gaffield. “Canada must match the ambition of our peers to advance knowledge and develop highly-qualified talent for the benefit of all on an increasingly competitive global stage.”
