About IDRC

A Crown corporation, we support leading thinkers who advance knowledge and solve practical development problems. We provide the resources, advice, and training they need to implement and share their solutions with those who need them most. In short, IDRC increases opportunities—and makes a real difference in people’s lives.

Working with our development partners, we multiply the impact of our investment and bring innovations to more people in more countries around the world. We offer fellowships and awards to nurture a new generation of development leaders.

What we do

IDRC funds research in developing countries to create lasting change on a large scale.

To make knowledge a tool for addressing pressing challenges, we

- provide developing-country researchers financial resources, advice, and training to help them find solutions to local problems.

- encourage knowledge sharing with policymakers, researchers, and communities around the world.

- foster new talent by offering fellowships and awards.

- strive to get new knowledge into the hands of those who can use it.

In doing so, we contribute to Canada’s foreign policy, complementing the work of Global Affairs Canada, and other government departments and agencies.
