Northern Fund

The Northern Fund will provide eligible institutions and organizations in Northern Canada with research infrastructure that will lay the foundation for research projects that address the priorities of the region and its communities. These research projects will be conceived, developed, led and managed by Northern institutions, researchers and communities.

For the purposes of this funding program, the North includes Yukon, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Nunavik and Nunatsiavut. The Northern Fund augments the Government of Canada’s strategic investments in Northern research and aims to strengthen Northern research capacity.

The Northern Fund is open for proposals in all research disciplines that clearly demonstrate how the research directly engages with and serves the needs of Northern communities, including First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities in the North.

Status: This funding program is open for proposals.
