2015 - Leveraging the power of research
With the launch of the 2016-2020 strategic plan in early 2016, the Federation continues to undertake research and programs that enhance the social science and humanities communities’ abilities to advance understanding of peoples, cultures and social relations in Canada and around the world. The Federation continues its research impact project to help members track and demonstrate the diverse impacts of their work—in creating new knowledge and scholarship, in teaching and learning, in policy, the economy and in communities. The Federation also develops initiatives to act on a new commitment to support the community in advancing reconciliation with Aboriginal peoples. And the Federation continues to support and leverage the impact of its membership through flagship programs such as Congress, Big Thinking, ASPP, Canada Prizes, annual conferences and a variety of national and regional events.
