The Canadian Tri-Council Funding Agencies (SSHRC, NSERC, CIHR) have coordinated requirements for research data management (RDM) resulting from publicly-funded research and to make such research data openly accessible. The Tri-Agency Statement of Principles on Digital Data Management was issued in mid-June 2016.
For any advice or assistance meeting your research data management requirements, please feel free to contact your subject liaison librarian.

Right now in Canada, the vast majority of research data is being lost. For example, a study of Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council funded research projects found that only 3 out of 110 studies had archived their data in a repository, and those 3 were all housed in the US?
