Let’s celebrate SSHRC Day on October 3

Join us on SSHRC Day and celebrate 40 years of SSHRC’s support of social sciences and humanities research and its impacts on society—in Canada and around the world.

On Wednesday, October 3, 2018, let’s get SSHRC-funded research stories trending on social media. This is the same day we will be announcing SSHRC’s 2018 Impact Award winners.


How can I participate?


What are the preferred topics?

  • Over the past 40 years, social sciences and humanities students and researchers have tackled a world of topics including, education, history, women’s studies and psychology. Bring back these #SSHRCfunded projects, highlight the accomplishments of the students and researchers behind these projects, and communicate how they made a difference locally, nationally, or beyond!
  • Don’t forget to highlight the impact of the research today and provide an update on the status of these projects and the people involved.

Can we organize an event instead?

  • Absolutely! Keep us in the loop.
