The Vanier Institute of the Family is now accepting funding applications for secondary data analysis of Statistics Canada and other national-level datasets with potential to advance understanding of family diversities and family wellbeing in Canada. To support the Vanier Institute’s value of capacity development, preference is given to early career scholars.

One grant valued at up to Cdn$25,000 will be awarded.

Until April 23, 2024, Vanier will be accepting funding applications for the secondary analysis of Statistics Canada and other nationally representative datasets that address family diversities and wellbeing in Canada. Research proposals should address these priority areas, guided by the Family Diversities and Wellbeing Framework:

  • – Family structure: one-parent families, skip-generation families, stepfamilies, blended families, families living apart together, families experiencing infertility;
  • – Family work: caregivers, families with remote workers, families with non-standard work schedules, families with self-employment;
  • – Family identity: new immigrant families (<5 years in Canada), Indigenous families, racialized families, families with disability, LGBTQ2S+ families.

When developing the research proposal, researchers are asked to include analyses of wellbeing outcomes.

The successful applicant will be notified on May 14, 2024, with a project start date of June 1, 2024. A final research report of 12 to 15 pages will be due on December 1, 2024.
