Finalizing the merger

April 1996 - Amalgamation: Humanities and Social Science Federation of Canada forms

In September 1995, both federations engage in talks about restructuring the Social Science Federation of Canada (SSFC) and the Canadian Federation for the Humanities (CFH) to meet the new environment of research and academia. A joint SSFC and CFH committee recommends that the Federations merge to form a single institution. The new Humanities and Social Science Federation of Canada is officially formed on April 1, 1996. They will remain an advocate for the social sciences and humanities in Canada.
