1968 - SSRCC publishes Timlin-Faucher reports on social sciences in Canada

In 1968, Mabel Timlin and Albert Faucher publish two separate reports on the social sciences in Canada. The Timlin report is published in English and Faucher’s report in French. Faucher and Timlin review French and English speaking universities, respectively. The reports examine the state of Canadian social sciences. Timlin and Faucher find that the social sciences in Canada are underfunded and need more financial autonomy with the Canada Council, as well as greater communication and expanded research efforts.
