Ottawa - December 7, 2014

The federal government has just released the revised and updated Science, Technology and Innovation (ST&I) strategy along with details of the Canada First Research Excellence Fund, originally announced in the 2014 budget.

OTTAWA, le 8 octobre 2014 –

Un rapport publié aujourd'hui par Évidence pour la Démocratie (ED) – un organisme national, non-partisan et sans but lucratif qui fait la promotion de politiques basées sur la science et les données probantes – et la Simon Fraser University montre que la plupart des ministères et organismes fédéraux ne favorisent pas une communication ouverte entre leurs scientifiques et le grand public.

OTTAWA (October 8, 2014) –

A report released today by Evidence for Democracy (E4D) – a national non-partisan, non-profit organization promoting evidence-based public policy – and Simon Fraser University (SFU) shows that most federal departments fail to adequately support open communication between their researchers and the public.

Evidence for Democracy (E4D), a national non-partisan organization championing evidence-based decision-making in public policy, will undergo substantial expansions thanks to a grant of $96,600 over 24 months from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). This grant highlights the growing desire for evidence-based policies in Canada and will allow E4D to expand their work helping scientists and experts engage with the public, journalists and policy makers.
