Canada is emerging from a decade in which our government systematically dismantled the research capacity of our nation. Now researchers in Canada are uniting around a positive and ambitious vision for the future of fundamental science research in our country. We need your help getting politicians on board to make this vision a reality.
The Fundamental Science Review Panel report shows that Canada is falling behind other countries when it comes to fundamental research and development. Government funding for research has steadily declined over the past 15 years and Canada is no longer in the top 30 countries for research spending (relative to GDP).
We need to act now to make sure this report doesn’t just sit on a shelf. We need to show Cabinet and our Members of Parliament that Canadians care about science and want them to implement all the recommendations made in the Fundamental Science Review Panel report.
