NSERC EDI Capacity-Building Grant

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Equity Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Institutional Capacity-Building Grant is a pilot funding opportunity for post-secondary institutions committed to identifying and eliminating systemic barriers that may impede the career trajectory of equity group members . The grant supports the federal government’s commitment to tackle challenges encountered by under-represented groups (women, persons with disabilities, Indigenous people, visible minorities and members of the LGBTQ2+ communities) in Canadian research institutions. The University of Regina is one of 15 recipients of the grant.

The University of Regina commitment includes integrating EDI priorities across institutional mandates, developing training and supports to build diversity and inclusion competencies in leaders and faculty, designing an EDI accountability mechanism.
