Petition to the House of Commons
- The graduate research student community is Quebec’s and Canada’s research and innovation workforce. They make discoveries on a daily basis that contribute to our society. These discoveries drive our economy, and their creativity and knowledge are needed to ensure that Quebec and Canada remain internationally competitive. Unfortunately, Canada’s graduate and post-graduate communities are poorly paid due to 20 years of stagnant funding from the federal granting councils. This lack of investment is resulting in a rapid loss of talent, with students who are abandoning their research and cannot afford to live in poverty. Quebec’s and Canada’s success depends on its ability to retain and attract the best graduate students and researchers.
