CCA Secures Funding Extension

The CCA welcomes the announcement of the results of the Strategic Science Fund today, which provides renewed funding for the CCA to continue our work to deliver independent, evidence-based assessments to inform public policy and decision making in Canada.

“We are grateful for the trust and confidence the Government of Canada has placed in CCA through this investment,” said Dr. Eric M. Meslin, President and CEO of the CCA. “This funding will support our research and assessment capabilities, ensuring that our work continues to serve as a vital resource for policymakers, government officials, and the broader Canadian public.”

This renewed investment comes as the CCA is poised to launch an exciting new strategic plan in 2024. CCA looks forward to continued collaboration with government, academia, non-profit and private sector partners as we continue to serve as a trusted resource for evidence-based decision making in Canada.
