Canada Research Continuity Emergency Fund (CRCEF)

In June 2020, the federal government announced a $450M Canada Research Continuity Emergency Fund (CRCEF) to provide wage support for eligible research-related personnel, as well as funding for incurred costs associated with maintenance and ramp-up of research activities. The fund was established to help sustain research at Canadian universities and health research institutions that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. KGHRI is a recipient of funding from this program via Queen’s University as per CRCEF guidelines.

KGHRI is dedicated to excellence in research and research training through an equitable, diverse and include research enterprise, which is also consistent with Queen’s University research mission. For more information about the CRCEF and program stewardship and transparency, please visit:
