Canada Research Chairs
The allocation of Chairs to individual universities is an integral part of the Canada Research Chairs program. Firstly, the allocation process ensures a dynamic program that responds to shifting research success at Canada’s academic institutions. Secondly, the process works to attract and retain individuals who are recognized as the world's most accomplished and promising researchers. Chair-holders aim to achieve research excellence in their areas of study, and to strengthen Canada’s international competitiveness as they improve depth of knowledge, quality of life, and develop the next generation through student supervision, teaching and research creation and coordination. ECU’s allocation of CRCs will follow our Strategic Research Plan.
