Knowledge Synthesis Grants are not intended to support original research. They are intended to support the synthesis of existing research knowledge and the identification of knowledge gaps. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support researchers, teams of researchers and knowledge users to produce knowledge syntheses and scoping reviews that will contribute to the use of synthesized evidence in decision-making and practice.

In support of SSHRC?s continued engagement and investment in Aboriginal research and talent, as well as collective actions to support truth and reconciliation efforts, SSHRC is launching a Knowledge Synthesis Grants funding opportunity for the future challenge area "How are the knowledge systems, experiences and aspirations of First Nations, Inuit and M?tis peoples essential to building a successful and shared future for all Canadians?" These grants will foster a deeper understanding of the current and historical, cultural, social and economic experiences of First Nations, Inuit and M?tis peoples in Canada. They will also support pathways to a vibrant and shared future for all Canadians. The resulting syntheses will help to identify roles that the academic, public, private and not-for-profit sectors may play in seizing future opportunities. This understanding and knowledge will help to develop robust policies, strategies, best practices and tools for a sustainable, equitable and prosperous future.
