Change in parental leave policy for training award holders

(2017-04-07) All CIHR, SSHRC and NSERC training award holders are now eligible for paid parental leave. Until now, training award holders had to confirm they were not eligible for other parental leave benefits programs in order to be eligible. The Tri-Agency Research Training Award Holder’s Guide was updated accordingly on April 1, 2017.

For any question regarding this change or any questions about training award programs, please contact: support@cihr-irsc.gc.ca.
