Canada Research Chair Recruitment and Retention

Requirements for Recruiting and Nominating Canada Research Chairs

As of September 2018, The Canada Research Chair Program has implemented new institutional requirements  as an update to the program’s Guidelines for ensuring a fair and transparent recruitment and nomination process (implemented in 2011) and which are being implemented as part of its Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan. 

Academic staff at Queen’s University are governed by a Collective Agreement  between the University and the Queen’s University Faculty Association (QUFA). More specifically, QUFA’s article 24 on Employment Equity  mandates the use of the Queen’s Equity Appointments Process . The university also has policies in place to support employees with disabilities, including an Accommodation in the Workplace Policy and a policy on the provision of job accommodations that take into account an employee’s accessibility needs due to disability.

External Canada Research Chair postings at Queen’s University are included on the university’s Faculty Recruitment  website, categorized by academic unit.  Academic units also employ a variety of strategies to ensure a diverse applicant pool, including posting to job boards and list serves of academic organizations of equity seeking groups, and ensuring that all postings are also hosted on Equitek , a national job board that proactively distributes employment postings to underrepresented demographics across Canada.
