The Tri-Agency Financial Administration Guide was recently revised to reflect the participation of all three granting Agencies (the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada [NSERC], the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada [SSHRC] and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research [CIHR]). Changes made to this year’s guide supersede the last version (2015) of the guide and take effect on October 1, 2016. The Summary of Changes is now available.
Unless otherwise indicated, these policies and requirements apply to all three Agencies. Any exceptions to these will be indicated in the program description of the respective Agency.
Note: For the purposes of this document, "Agency" refers to one of the three agencies—NSERC, SSHRC or CIHR—and "Grantee" refers to “ Nominated Principal Applicant" for CIHR.
