The Canada Research Chairs Program
stands at the centre of a national strategy to make Canada one of the world's top countries for research and development.
In 2000, the Government of Canada created a new permanent program to establish 2000 research professorships — Canada Research Chairs — in universities across the country. The Canada Research Chairs Program invests $300 million a year to attract and retain some of the world's most accomplished and promising minds.
Chairholders aim to achieve research excellence in natural sciences, engineering, health sciences, humanities, and social sciences. They improve Canadians’ depth of knowledge and quality of life, strengthen the country’s international competitiveness, and help train the next generation of highly skilled people through student supervision, teaching, and the coordination of other researchers’ work.
Chairs are awarded to researchers having distinguished themselves through the quality and excellence of their research program. This program helps to consolidate the strategic planning of the university and the research center responsible for the researcher’s nomination.List of Canada Research Chairs held by CHU Sainte-Justine researchers
