Organizational structure

SSHRC is governed by a council appointed by the federal government to represent the interests of the academic, public and private sectors. Council committees chart the direction of SSHRC and ensure that our grants and fellowships programs meet the needs of Canadians.

SSHRC has an Independent Audit Committee appointed by the federal government to ensure the rigorous stewardship and accountability of public funds.

The Advisory Committee to Address Anti-Black Racism in Research and Research Training is composed of members from the Canadian community of Black researchers, representing the diversity of the community as closely as possible.

The Advisory Committee to Address Barriers to Accessibility comprises 13 members, including two co-chairs nominated by committee members. The group includes representation from across a wide range of perspectives, lived experiences and personal identification, including regional and linguistic diversity.
