Industry committee  I would like to check, but I would suggest it's probably about 70:30 in-kind contributions and 30% cash.

Industry committee  That would include in the case of, say, a private sector partner, the contribution of individuals who would be assigned to a project and work on behalf of a project by that company or community organization. We consider that a valid contribution. I don't want to be unclear about

Industry committee  Do you mean the actual evaluation?

March 10th, 2016Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I would have to see what form that took, at that point. There would be some internal documents, so I will go back and see what we did, in terms of the box-ticking exercise.

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  Absolutely. Very closely. No. They operate on a slightly different basis. They report through industry, through Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, ISED, that's true. But in fact, as agencies we were established by the Parliament of Canada. We are formally agenci

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  Yes. We're limited in our funding. We have funds that are about one-third of the other agencies for research and for training, so the more we focus, the less we have for open research. It's pretty much that simple.

Industry committee  On pressing issues like infrastructure with respect to policy and infrastructure placement, for example, with respect to placement of pipelines and pipeline construction or other projects that would affect communities.... If you're asking me for specific examples, I'd be more th

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I think we see this quite a bit in extractive industries, but not exclusively. The ones I know best are the ones where I've had the most discussions, and they include FPAC, the Forestry Products Association of Canada; and on the other side of the equation, the Canadian Council fo

March 10th, 2016Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I don't necessarily want to dwell on the pipeline issue. If you're looking to extract resources in an area, for example, and it makes sense for the community and it makes sense for the company, and it's for the benefit of Canada, not everybody always agrees all the time with res

March 10th, 2016Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  This is an extremely important question, and I want to be absolutely clear. I can't tell you that everybody likes everything we fund. That's a fact. I can say that—and I think the other presidents can probably say the same thing.... One thing I have to say and be absolutely clear

March 10th, 2016Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  We are going to talk about that again, though.

March 10th, 2016Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  Yes. Thank you for your question. The good thing about working in a shop where there a lot of policy people is that this becomes a routine exercise. That came up, specifically. Our council chair is Jack Mintz. Some of you may know he is a very well-regarded Canadian economist. T

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  We will share.

March 10th, 2016Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I'll have to answer by saying yes and no—in a way. The first part of the answer is that we are an agency that supports all Canadian researchers in the post-secondary sector. We have competitions that are open to all researchers and students. The applications will come from anywhe
