ABOUT THE PROGRAM


Background

In 1996, the Canadian Securities Institute Research Foundation (the Foundation), formerly The Investor Learning Centre, was established as a charitable organization. Its main objectives included originating and supporting educational and research initiatives pertaining to capital markets, savings and investments and personal financial planning.

In September 2002, the Board of Directors of the Foundation announced that it was launching a new research-focused program that would exclusively sponsor and showcase important original research on matters of fundamental value to the investing public. In this initiative, the Foundation partners with major Canadian universities, students and others.

Since 2005, the Canadian Securities Institute Research Foundation has granted more than $1,000,000 to researchers in universities across Canada.
