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

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

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I'll start if I may. It's a really, really good question. What I would say is that from the very, very start, we have taken a very broad view of reconciliation at SSHRC, the tri-council, and with the work we're doing together. There's a view that research on reconciliation is re

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Do you mean globally or with respect to indigenous people?

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.

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Thank you for the invitation to be here. I'm here with my colleagues, Ursula Gobel and Manon Tremblay, from SSHRC. I want to begin, as you did, by recognizing and acknowledging our presence on the unceded territory of the Algonquin people. As president of the Social Sciences

February 19th, 2019Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I would generally agree. As I said earlier, it's really important to take a broader view of this, because the impacts and the results are often not anticipated. As was mentioned earlier, we just have to keep the pipeline going—invest in the best minds and see what happens. It may

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I would just respond as well that this will entail a major culture shift, because the model in place now is a traditional model for the most part. I should mention as well that there is lots of research and development and knowledge transfer that does not involve technology. This

June 20th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I would say there are multiple entities. We talked about IRAP and certainly the technology access centres and so forth. A lot of this will depend on the ability of a business or a company to, in the first place, identify opportunity. That's partly an educational activity, and i

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  We are responsible for agencies that fund primarily fundamental research or earlier-stage research. We haven't worked directly with the organizations or agencies that will deliver that program. At face value, from my perspective and given my university experience, this will be a
