In April 2021, the Panel on Responsible Conduct of Research (PRCR) released proposed revisions to the RCR Framework (2016) to the public for comment. Written comments were accepted until July 2, 2021. All public comments received are posted below unless the contributor requested that they remain confidential. All 31 public comments received are posted. Comments are posted in the language in which they were received.

PRCR appreciates the thoughtful comments submitted by Canada's research community. PRCR and the Secretariat will consider this valuable feedback in their deliberations and submit final proposed revisions to the three federal research agencies (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC).
