Call for Proposals - Funding Available for Research on the Social Economy in Northern Canada 

Value: Up to $20,000/year for 2 years

The Social Economy Research Network of Northern Canada invites applications for research projects dealing with the Social Economy in the North. Funding is available to support research that fits within the context of the Social Economy Research Network of Northern Canada. The overall goal of this Research Network is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on issues relevant to the social economy in northern Canada (Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Nunavik and Labrador). The Network has established four broad research themes for Social Economy research with coordinators located at four Canadian Universities. Subprojects should fit within one of these research themes and complement the overall activities and objectives of the program

Research Themes:
Applications will be accepted for consideration in the four research theme areas:

  1. Profiling the social economy in Northern Canada
  2. Resource regimes and the social economy in the North
  3. The State and the social economy in the North
  4. Indigenous communities and the social economy in the North

SERNNoCa encourages applicants to seek partnerships with community groups and other researchers who can contribute expertise and resources to research related to the social economy to help develop our knowledge and understanding of this sector throughout the North. Details and guidelines for applications follow:

Funding is available to support research that fits within the context of the Social Economy Research Network of Northern Canada.

The overall goal of this Research Network is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on issues relevant to the social economy in northern Canada (Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Northern Quebec and Labrador). The Network has established four broad research themes for Social Economy research with coordinators located at four Canadian Universities. Sub-projects should fit within one of these research themes and complement the overall activities of the program.

We strongly advise those individuals that are considering applying for funding to consult with one or more of the theme coordinators prior to submitting a proposal.  Each subproject team will form a network involving academics, students, community groups and other interested partners. The Network will build a future generation of researchers, create a presence for the social economy in Northern Canada and focus heavily on knowledge dissemination

Regional Node Grants are for regionally-based, community-university alliances to carry out programs of research and knowledge mobilization that are relevant to that region. Each node conducts new research, facilitates networking among stakeholders, and trains students and community researchers. The governance model for each node must include active partnerships between universities and community organizations. Each node must involve researchers and/or community partners from other regions: this is to ensure that multiple perspectives and a broad range of experience will inform the research process and facilitate knowledge mobilization and networking within and among Canada's regions, on the national level and internationally. Node teams are encouraged to secure funding from partners.
