On August 29, 2023, as part of a major research announcement, the Honourable Randy Boissonnault, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Official Languages, on behalf of the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, announced just under $150 million in federal research funding has been awarded to 605 researchers working in social sciences and humanities disciplines at institutions across Canada. The funding was awarded through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s (SSHRC) 2022 Insight Grants, 2022 Partnership Grants, and 2022-23 Partnership Development Grants competitions.
