Please note that changes have been made to the Canada Research Chairs nomination instructions and reporting requirements.
- Institutions and nominees should ensure that agency requirements for certain kinds of research have been considered within their proposed research program. Refer to the Agency Requirements for Certain Kinds of Research section of the Nominate a Chair page for more details.
- The Chairs nomination process has been amended in order to be compliant with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. Institutions and nominees may have to submit the Environmental Information form if their proposed research will have an environmental impact. Refer to the Environmental Impact section of the Nominate a Chair page for more details.
- When a Chair award is terminated early, the chairholder must complete an exit survey. This survey can now be completed online; this replaces the PDF form. The Secretariat will provide chairholders with a link to the survey by email upon termination.
- A final activity report is no longer required for Chairs that are not renewed.
