Resources for Researchers / Funding for Faculty Members

Research in the form of creative and scholarly activity is an important part of the Emily Carr Community.

The Office of the Director of Research is responsible for promoting and assisting with the research activity of Faculty, Sessional, and graduate students. Making our research activities strong and visible helps us attract great students and recruit new Faculty members.  It allows students to learn research thinking through participation in projects, often as research assistants or co-op students. It allows faculty to grow their practice, and to incorporate the latest in research thinking into their courses.

Faculty members are encouraged to visit the following funders for more information on research grants:

Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council
Canadian Institutes of Health Research
Natural Sciences and Engineering Research 
Canada Council for the Arts
BC Arts Council 
Mitacs
Vancouver Foundation
Networks of Centres of Excellence
Industrial Research Assistance Program
Canadian Heritage
