The Research Chairs Evaluation Committee (RCEC) is composed of members representing research fields funded by Canada's three federal granting agencies (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC).
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 Chaires de Recherche sur le Monde Francophone. All nominations are subject to the highest evaluation criteria as set out by the federal government’s Canada Research Chairs Program.
