Science and Research committee  That's a very good question. I spoke to the previous minister about that very issue. Currently, I think the split is 22‑38, so we're doing a bit better. We are also active in tri-agency programming to increase the share of funding available to researchers in the social sciences

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Science and Research committee  It's an excellent question. For most researchers, they already know the answer. They know where they work. They know where their colleagues are, and they know with which agency they need to work. We have developed a couple of mechanisms to assist those folks whose work tends to

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Science and Research committee  Thank you for your question, Mr. Blanchette-Joncas. The Fonds de recherche du Québec's structure isn't all that different from the federal structure. The three agencies were combined into a single agency. In Quebec, the conditions are a bit different from those in the rest of Ca

Science and Research committee  It was an honour and a privilege to take on that role.

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I'm going to try. First of all, what we said is that when researchers or students, typically graduate students, apply to us for funding, in the projects they design and in the projects they elaborate, they can certainly—and we encourage them to—go well beyond traditional western

February 19th, 2019Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  That is absolutely true; it is new. As agencies, we've always funded what we would call indigenous research. For example, the CIHR has set a floor of 4.6% of its funding to support indigenous research. SSHRC spends every year—year in, year out—about 10% to 12% of all of its fundi

February 19th, 2019Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Okay. You're asking the question about SSHRC. I'd be pleased to try to answer with respect to the other funding councils as well, CIHR and NSERC, which are also doing important work. I want to make that very clear. If I'm speaking here about my agency, I'm responsible for that.
