The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada’s (SSHRC) 2016-20 Strategic Plan, Advancing Knowledge for Canada’s Future, was approved by SSHRC’s governing Council in March and articulates the agency’s vision for the next four years. Its purpose is to guide collective efforts to enable excellence, create new opportunities for research and training, connect research to Canadians and, ultimately, advance knowledge for a better Canada.
The plan has three strategic objectives:
- To enable excellence in a changing research landscape
- To create opportunities for research and training through collaborative initiatives
- To connect social sciences and humanities research with Canadians
To position Canada as a world leader in social sciences and humanities research and research training, SSHRC will continue to collaborate closely with partner institutions in academia, as well as communities and organizations across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
