Expert Panels at Work

We currently have five projects on the go, with two report releases planned for this summer. The recent ISED Call for Proposals for CCA assessment topics is now closed. The list of assessment topics will be finalized throughout the summer and fall for anticipated start dates beginning in April 2020.

The ISED process is one of two ways the CCA undertakes assessments. The CCA also accepts topic submissions from outside of the ISED funding agreement at any time. Proposals can come from federal, provincial, or municipal governments as well as non-governmental, and other organizations. These assessments are funded by the requesting organizations.
