Policy Research Initiative

http://www.policyresearch.gc.ca

The Policy Research Initiative (PRI) is a federal government organization with two objectives: to strengthen the federal government’s research capacity and to create an infrastructure that fosters collaboration on horizontal policy research. The PRI's focus is the government’s medium-term policy agenda, which includes research projects in areas such as population aging, poverty and exclusion, using social capital as a public policy tool, North American linkages, and sustainable development. To promote its policy research the PRI publishes the newsletter Horizons, as well as the public policy magazine Isuma. The PRI also organizes a number of conferences.

The PRI was created in 1996 by the Clerk of the Privy Council, however, it has links to the broader policy research community, including academics, policy researchers, independent organizations, and other organizations. Members of the Initiative often work in partnership with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) on the Trends Project, a means of engaging academics across Canada in the production of policy research.
