New Tri-Agency Guidance on Research Security webpage

The federal granting agencies are committed to providing our research community with the most up-to-date information and best practices to safeguard their research and to mitigate research security risks.

In support of this commitment, they have launched a new Tri-Agency Guidance on Research Security webpage.

Included in this webpage is the Tri-Agency Guidance on the Policy on Sensitive Technology Research and Affiliations of Concern (STRAC Policy), which describes the granting agencies’ harmonized approach to implementing the STRAC Policy. Detailed information, including the attestation form, procedures, resources, and frequently asked questions are now available. This webpage also includes Tri-Agency Guidance on the National Security Guidelines for Research Partnerships, as well as a list of recommended research security resources. To learn more about the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s implementation of research security measures, please consult its dedicated guidance page
