About the Program

Helping Canadian postsecondary institutions with the hidden costs of research.

Indirect Costs Program funds assist universities, colleges, and their affiliated research hospitals and institutes in maintaining a world-class research environment by helping:

  • maintain modern labs and equipment;
  • provide access to up-to-date knowledge resources;
  • provide research management and administrative support;
  • meet regulatory and ethical standards; or
  • transfer knowledge from academia to the private, public and not-for-profit sectors

…to benefit Canadians economically, socially and culturally.
