4 Canada Research Chairs are allocated roughly in proportion to the level of funding provided to each discipline area by the granting agencies. Approximately 22 per cent of Canada Research Chairs are in the social sciences and humanities disciplines.

6 It is unlikely that the full complement of 2,000 Chairs will ever be filled in its entirety at any given time. This is due to the natural dynamism of the program, as chairholders retire and universities are in the process of submitting new nominations.
