The Government of Yukon, with the generous support of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC), is issuing an Invitational Call for Proposals for research that supports understanding of and recovery from the direct and indirect impacts of the COVID19 pandemic.
This program aims to fund and support effective and appropriate research that will address the planning and decision-making needs of Yukon’s governments, communities, and institutions in recovering from the direct and indirect impacts of the pandemic.
The broad priorities for this program are:
- Increased understanding of social, cultural, environmental, and economic impacts of the pandemic (and pandemic response).
- Increased understanding of mental and physical health impacts of the pandemic (and pandemic response).
- Other COVID-19 recovery-related research.
- A total budget request of up to $75,000 per project is allowable, though budget requests are expected to reflect need, and smaller amounts are encouraged, where appropriate.
- For this invitational call, eligibility is limited to applicants who have been invited to submit a proposal based on their successful Expression of Interest submission.
- Project leads and team members may be independent researchers, or maybe situated in any of the following organizations:
- Governments (Federal, territorial, municipal).
- Indigenous governments and organizations.
- Universities and research institutes.
- Businesses and industry organizations.
- Non-profit organizations.
