Making the Shift funds must be issued to researchers at Canadian institutions. International collaborators are welcome and often important to Making the Shift projects; however, we cannot flow funds to international collaborators directly. The Managing Director can work with researchers to facilitate working with partners outside of Canada. Please contact mtsfunding@yorku.ca if you have any questions.

A few options for involving international collaborators:

  • Use cash contributions from partner organizations (Canadian or otherwise) to fund work at an international site (i.e. these would be unrestricted funds unlike the Making the Shift funds).
  • International collaborators could seek matching funds from a program in their home locale which could be named as part of the overall Making the Shift project budget as a partner contribution.
  • Consider whether Mitacs international programs are suitable to support your collaboration. Mitacs is an RFP partner and can help you to understand your options.
  • Funds can be used for convenings bringing international partners together.
