Tri-Agency Financial Administration


This Guide is in effect for all eligible administering institutions on April 1, 2020.

Stakeholders from all institutions are encouraged to read the Guide carefully. They should consult the material offered in the resources section below.

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada(SSHRC) "the Agencies" have launched a new initiative called Renewal of the Tri-Agency Financial Administration. This new Guide is a reflection of the initiative and focuses  on the following three key areas:

  • Moving to a more flexible approach for the administration and use of grant funds, which will bring significant changes to the Tri-Agency Financial Administration Guide
  • Renewing the Agencies' approach to financial monitoring reviews
  • Increasing the effectiveness of the administration of grants
