Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy

The Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy was released in March 2021 and will have a phased roll-out, eventually, the following requirements will apply to researchers:

  • All grant proposals submitted to the agencies should include methodologies that reflect best practices in RDM. For certain funding opportunities, the agencies will require data management plans (DMPs) to be submitted to the appropriate agency at the time of application.
  • Grant recipients are required to deposit into a digital repository all digital research data, metadata and code that directly support the research conclusions in journal publications and pre-prints that arise from agency-supported research.

Important Implementation dates:

  • March 1, 2023 - Institutions are required to have institutional strategies for research data management.
  • Spring 2022 - An initial set of funding opportunities will be subject to the DMP requirement
  • The phased introduction of the data deposit requirement has yet to be determined.
