Last summer, you told the CAP what you valued about physics in Canada, and we passed this information on to the federal government’s fundamental science review panel.
Last spring, the committee released a powerful report (The Nayor Report) that includes many ideas and actions that evolved from their broad nationwide consultations.
Now we need your help to encourage Parliament to implement these recommendations to improve fundamental research in Canada.
By taking part in these efforts, you will be joining many other scientists from diverse disciplines who are lobbying for rejuvenation in our federal support of fundamental science.
There are three ways that you can help!
- Phone your Member of Parliament and offer to take part in a face-to-face meeting. View a step-by-step guide here.
- Tweet about fundamental science using #SupportTheReport, #Students4TheReport. Read more about these hashtags here.
- Send a message to government officials via the Evidence for Democracy campaign and sign a petition by the Canadian Association of University Teachers
