The Canadian Language and Literacy Research Network is proud to be a Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE). As such, we meet funding criteria based on research excellence, the development of world-class researchers, the creation of research partnerships, and the application of research to foster economic and social development.

The NCE program is jointly administered by three granting councils: the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), in partnership with Industry Canada.

Thank you to The University of Western Ontario for hosting the Canadian Language and Literacy Research Network.
