The QICSS embarked on numerous missions right from its inception, with a special emphasis on fostering the growth of the next generation of researchers. In line with this vision, the QICSS Scholarship Program was established with the primary goal of providing financial assistance to Master's and Ph.D. students who engage with datasets sourced from either Statistics Canada or the Institut de la statistique du Québec while conducting research within the QICSS's laboratory settings.

This program encompasses three distinct scholarship categories:

1. Entrance Scholarships: These scholarships offer support for research endeavours conducted within the QICSS aimed at attaining a Master's or Ph.D. degree.

2. Complementary Grants for Intensive Data Analysis: Awarded to those individuals who dedicate a semester to concentrated data analysis while progressing toward their Master's thesis.

3. Grants for Student Research Outcomes: Designed to incentivize students to share their findings through presentations at conferences or symposia, as well as by contributing articles to scientific journals.

CRDCN National Policy Challenge

This event stands as a platform that emphasizes a specific challenge faced by emerging researchers: employing microdata to delve into the intricacies of a chosen policy quandary, subsequently showcasing their findings to both their peers and a panel of esteemed researchers and policy shapers.

The underlying challenge revolves around empowering these budding scholars to harness microdata for a deeper exploration of policy issues. This endeavour underlines the CRDCN's commitment to nurturing the growth of research capabilities. The subjects explored by our finalists traverse a spectrum of policy realms, spanning from immigration to healthcare, capturing the diversity of policy dilemmas under scrutiny.

Within this context, the victor of this year's challenge, Angèle Lucie Poirier, seized the opportunity to delve into the motivating forces driving recreational cannabis consumption in Canada, offering valuable insights into this noteworthy societal issue. 

Discover the heart of the challenge through the array of presentations featured on the CRDCN YouTube channel from the June 2022 National Policy Challenge.
