The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) has launched a Knowledge Synthesis Grants funding opportunity to assess the state of research knowledge on the topic of The Emerging Asocial Society, under SSHRC’s Imagining Canada’s Future initiative.

This call for proposals focuses on the state of knowledge from research on issues related to the growing sense of disconnection, isolation and loneliness in Canadian society. The resulting syntheses will identify roles that the academic, public, private and not-for-profit sectors may play in promoting more connected and resilient communities, and may inform the development of effective tools, robust policies and sustainable practices required to support the transition to a more equitable, healthy and prosperous future.

The deadline for applications is December 17, 2021. For more information on the call for proposals, please contact:
