Since our government took office, we have worked hard to return science and research to their rightful place. Canada is now an international beacon for science and for scholarship. Our researchers are empowered like never before. They work in state-of-the-art labs and facilities, are encouraged to speak and be heard and young researchers just starting out have access to better support to balance life at work and at home. We are identifying new ways of doing research with Indigenous communities. Women are being better represented in the lab, the classroom and the field. And our international research programs are being celebrated so they can continue to light the way for the rest of the world.
