This group will advise the presidents of Canada’s federal research funding agencies — the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council — and the Canada Foundation for Innovation, on the implementation of the interagency strategic plan, Setting New Directions to Support Indigenous Research and Research Training in Canada 2019–2022.

Following a call for expressions of interest, Leadership Circle members were selected based on the recommendations of an external expert committee of leaders, which was composed exclusively of First Nations, Inuit and Métis scholars and community members.
