Tri-Agency Updates & CCV Consultation

Date & Time

Monday, 3 June 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm


ORS Boardroom (Room 102), 6190 Agronomy Road


Postdoctoral Fellows Office, SPARC and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research



The Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the PDFO invite postdoctoral fellows who have had first-hand experience working with the CCV to join this 90-minute consultation and provide direct input to future changes being planned for the CCV. The session will also introduce participants to the Gateway Tri-Agency initiative to modernize the grants management platform and to the consultation process for the renewal of CIHR’s strategic plan. The session will conclude with training-related updates from CIHR's Strategic Action Plan on Training and the College of Reviewers.

Launched in 2002, the Canadian Common CV (CCV) is a web-based application that provides researchers with a single, common approach to gathering CV information required by a network of federal, provincial and non-profit research funding organizations. The CCV allows researchers to enter their CV data once and output it in formats suitable for submission to member organizations. The Tri-Agencies (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC) recognize that there are challenges with the CCV application. To this end, we are looking to make adjustments to the CCV application to ensure that researchers and research administrators have access to the most efficient platform possible. This session will give participants an opportunity to provide input on upcoming changes
