Canada's Fundamental Science Review
In June 2016, Minister of Science Kirsty Duncan launched an independent review of federal funding for fundamental science. In April 2017, the review’s advisory panel published their recommendations, after a nation-wide consultation process. The Federation helped to inform the panel’s recommendations and encourages the Government of Canada to act on its findings.
