Council

SSHRC’s governing council has the mandate to advise the president of SSHRC on strategy, risk management, performance management and stakeholder relations, with the goal of ensuring SSHRC’s priorities and programs support high-quality research, training and knowledge mobilization, and enable a strong, vibrant research community in the social sciences and humanities.

The vice-president and chair of SSHRC’s governing council chairs its meetings and plays a key role in strengthening the council’s ability to provide SSHRC’s president with independent guidance.

Council members elect the vice-president and chair, subject to approval by the governor-in-council.
