Canada Research Chairs

Canada Research Chairs’ prestigious program is at the core of a national strategy to consolidate excellence in research and training in Canada’s postsecondary institutions. Chairholders aim for research excellence in the fields of natural sciences, engineering, health sciences, social sciences, and humanities. They contribute to training the next generation of highly qualified professionals by supervising students, teaching, and coordinating the work of other researchers.

Through concerted efforts, the Université de Sherbrooke is aiming to achieve specific equity and diversity targets, and provide a supportive and inclusive work environment. Therefore, the management for allocating Canada Research Chairs is regulated using institutional benchmarks in a spirit of transparency based on recognized best practices.
