Canada Research Chairs are some of the world’s brightest scholars and scientists who contribute to new discoveries and help us make sense of the world we live in. This cycle of chairs will see more discoveries and critical research contributions in diverse research areas such as health economics, Black studies, photonic devices, substance use and health policy research, artificial intelligence law and data governance, and ocean history and sustainability, among many others. The CRC program is a tri-agency initiative of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
