The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) is launching its next call for proposals under its Discovery Frontiers program. This round of funding will focus on Biodiversity and Adaptation of Biosystems. Funding available is $1 million per year for four years. Letters of Intent are due on April 17, 2017.
To learn more about this call, visit the NSERC program website.
Under the new Trudeau government, minister Kirsty Duncan launched a federal review of Fundamental Science in Canada (see their website). CSEE president Jeremy Kerr submitted a response to this review in late September 2016, which you can download below:

According to NSERC, documents that are not considered by NSERC to be
public documents are provided only in the format in which they were
originally prepared. As a consequence, the 2013 Report from the Evolution
and Ecology (1503) Evaluation Group is available only in English.
