With a significant funding increase for the granting councils, this investment demonstrates the government’s support for research in science and its applications.

The budget contains a number of measures that align with NSERC’s strategic plan, NSERC 2020, for example, investing in a new generation of early-career researchers, building a world-class, diversified, and interdisciplinary research enterprise, working internationally to leverage Canadian research strengths and contributing to building knowledge, talent, and expertise.

NSERC would like to thank the research community for their profound level of engagement in providing input during pre-budget consultations.
