June 20, 1995 - Restructuring of the CFH and SSFC begins

In 1995, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council plans to eliminate core funding to both federations, including the Aid to Scholarly Publications Program (ASPP) by 1998. Following years of joint committees and considering merging, the Social Science Federation of Canada (SSFC) and Canadian Federation for the Humanities (CFH) begin to seriously examine amalgamating into a unified federation to reduce costs. The SSFC and CFH create a joint committee to examine how to restructure the federations in light of funding cuts.
