Federal budget day 2011 is just around the corner – on March 22 at 4pm, we’ll know the proposed fiscal plan for Canada this coming year.

In our pre-budget submission, the Federation highlighted the importance of investing in Canada’s next generation of researchers, and promoted creating new interdisciplinary, knowledge mobilization and research mobility funding initiatives.

Here at the Federation, we’re anticipating how the budget will affect Canada’s social science and humanities research community. I’ll be at the lock up on Parliament Hill on Tuesday with over 100 other organizations, all of us set to eagerly examine the budget in detail.

Check back here on budget day for the Federation’s full response to the government’s announcements! In the meantime, for a refresher on the Federation’s pre-budget submission, visit our website.
