The cost of doing research can be broken down into direct and indirect costs. Direct costs can be directly attributable to a research project, such as salaries, supplies, travel, and equipment. These direct costs are easily identified and included in a project's budget. Indirect costs relate to a research project, but are often difficult to identify. The Federal Government recognized these costs and created a grant known as the Research Support Fund (RSF) intended to cover the indirect costs attributable to Tri-Agency (SSHRC, NSERC, CIHR) funded research grants.

The Canada Research Continuity Emergency Fund (CRCEF) was announced on May 15, 2020, as part of the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan. The temporary program has been established to help sustain the research enterprise at Canadian universities and health research institutions that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is expected that the program will help reduce negative impacts of the pandemic and ensure that the benefits of significant investments to date in universities and health research institutions are protected. This will maintain Canada’s international competitiveness in the global, knowledge-based economy, and contribute to Canadians’ health and social and cultural life, as well as the health of Canada’s natural environment.
