Research at John Abbott

John Abbott College encourages collaborative research: we welcome efforts from external researchers to foster relationships with our research community.

For further inquiries, please contact:

The Research Support Fund is an initiative from the Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat: Canadian Institutes of Health Research,  Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council,   Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Canada Foundation for Innovation, Health Canada, and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada.
The Research Support Fund aims to help off-set the financial  burden of the indirect costs of research supported by the Tri-Agencies (CIHR, SSHRC, and NSERC) that is placed on Canadian postsecondary institutions.
Indirect costs of research are the less obvious costs that an institution must incur when active in research. Examples of these costs would include the upgrade and maintenance of research equipment, salaries of personnel required to financially administer a research grant, support of a research ethics board, and the professional development of research-dedicated personnel.
For a complete list of eligible expenses allowed with the Research Support Fund, please follow this link:
John Abbott College will use its portion of the Research Support Fund ($27,532) solely for the support of Management and Administration; which includes the salaries and benefits of employees who support research at John Abbott College.
