The Research Chairs Evaluation Committee (RCEC) is composed of 12 members representing, in equal proportions, research fields funded by Canada's three federal granting agencies (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC). The Vice-President, Research, who chairs the RCEC, the two Associate Vice-Presidents, Research and the Vice-President, Academic and Provost, are ex-officio members.
Committee members serve a one-year term, which may be renewed. The selection of members takes into account the Office of the Vice-President Research’s commitment to ensure diversity and to promote equity and inclusivity with regards to the four designated groups in Canada: women, Aboriginal peoples, members of visible minorities, and persons with disabilities.
The RCEC's mandate is to evaluate new and renewal nominations submitted for the following categories of Chairs: Canada Research Chairs; University Research Chairs; and Research Chairs in Canadian Francophonie. All nominations are subject to the highest evaluation criteria as set out by the federal government’s Canada Research Chairs Program.
