Connecting with Society

Social sciences and humanities research enhances our understanding of modern social, cultural, technological, environmental, economic, political and wellness issues.

The work SSHRC supports also encourages the deepest levels of inquiry. It spurs innovative researchers to learn from each other's disciplines, delve into multiparty collaborations, and achieve common goals for the betterment of Canadian society. Research is shared with communities, businesses and governments, who use the new knowledge to innovate and improve people's lives.
