Established in 2000, the Canada Research Chairs Program stands at the centre of a national strategy to make Canada one of the world’s top five countries for research and development. Chairholders advance the frontiers of knowledge in their fields, not only through their own work, but also by teaching and supervising students and coordinating the work of other researchers.
The University of Manitoba currently holds 48 Canada Research Chairs. Seven of these Chairs are housed in the Faculty of Arts. Our chairholders are research leaders or rising stars in the social sciences and humanities and natural sciences.

Annette Desmarais, Department of Sociology, SSHRC Tier 2 in Human Rights, Social Justice and Food Sovereignty
