Consequences of not meeting the program’s equity, diversity and inclusion requirements


The Government of Canada is committed to excellence in research and research training for the benefit of Canadians. Achieving an equitable, diverse and inclusive Canadian research enterprise is essential to creating the innovative and impactful research necessary to seize opportunities, and respond to global challenges.

The following pages summarize consequences imposed on institutions that do not meet the program’s equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) requirements. Additional information on the program’s EDI requirements and practices can be found here.
