Funding

All the First Nations Innovation partners contribute significant staff time and other in-kind resources to the project. The First Nations Innovation project is supported by an Insight Grant from SSHRC (the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada) that runs for five years until 2018. Since 2005, SSHRC has supported the project partners with several grants – a Strategic Network grant (2005) for the RICTA project, and two Standard Research Grants (2006-2009 and 2009-2012) and two Outreach Grants (2009-2011 and 2012-2013) for the VideoCom project. Check out the SSHRC website http://sshrc.ca for more information about their peer-reviewed grant programs. The SSHRC grants are administered by the University of New Brunswick.
