What is the Research Support Fund?

The Research Support Fund assists Canadian postsecondary institutions with the costs associated with managing their research enterprise, helping them to maintain a world-class research environment. Grants can be used to:

  • maintain modern labs and equipment;
  • secure research from threats;
  • provide access to up-to-date knowledge resources;
  • provide research management and administrative support;
  • meet regulatory and ethical standards; or
  • transfer knowledge from academia to the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Over $450 million is invested each year through the Research Support Fund to support researchers, collaboration and breakthrough science. This includes the Incremental Project Grants and research security.
