Concordia & COVID-19 research

Funding opportunities

On May 15, the Government of Canada announced an investment of $450 million to support the research enterprise. This new funding, which will be managed by SSHRC, NSERC and CIHR, will go to wage support for those working in universities and health research institutes, to maintain essential research-related activities.

The funding will be distributed to institutions as block grants in two phases; further details can be found here. Once the tri-council has finalized the implementation of these block grants, we will communicate with our community as to how the funds will be managed within Concordia.
