Following Federal Budget 2021, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) is pleased to announce that a new strategic initiative will be launched in August 2021 on the themes of race, gender and diversity. The pre-announcement of this new funding opportunity can be found at the following link:


The Race, Gender and Diversity Initiative will aim to support partnership research to inform actions that address social disparities related to race, gender, and other forms of diversity. Researchers from post-secondary institutions, as well as those from not-for-profit organizations can submit applications for projects that are community-led and community based, and which are based on the lived experience of underrepresented and disadvantaged groups, including but not limited to women; First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit Peoples; people living with disabilities; racialized minorities; religious minorities; and LGBTQ2+ people, as well as individuals who identify as, or belong to, more than one of these groups.


More info to come in August once the official call is announced.
