Canada Research ChairsThe Canada Research Chairs program is committed to excellence in research and research training, with 2000 research professorships—Canada Research Chairs—in eligible degree-granting institutions across the country. The Canada Research Chairs program invests approximately $265 million per year to attract and retain some of the world's most accomplished and promising minds.
