Tri - Agency Research Data Management Policy Requirements

The Tri-Agency (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC) adopted the Research Data Management (RDM) Policy in 2021, and it is being implemented in stages with the objective to promote RDM and data stewardship practices amongst Canadian researchers.

The Tri-Agency RDM Policy has three key stages:

  1. Institutional RDM strategies – By March 1st, 2023, each post-secondary institution (including research hospitals) eligible to receive Tri-Agency funds, must develop and publish an institutional RDM strategy on their institution’s website.
  2. Data management plans – By spring 2022, the agencies will identify the initial set of funding opportunities subject to the DMP requirement. The agencies will pilot the DMP requirement in targeted funding opportunities before this date
  3. Data deposit – After reviewing the published institutional RDM strategies, the agencies will phase in the data deposit requirement. Timelines for this requirement have not been finalized.

Unity Health Toronto Institutional Research Data Management Strategy Draft

In response to the Tri-Agency’s RDM Policy, Unity Health Toronto has established a RDM Steering Committee and developed a draft strategy to guide the institution on research data management practices that align with the policy and its requirements. The first draft of the Unity Health Toronto RDM Strategy is now available in the link below.
