The University of Ottawa has created a management committee whose role is to define the CCP’s strategic orientation and ensure that the objectives of the CCP are met as defined in the contribution agreement between the University of Ottawa and the Government of Canada.  The members of the management committee are:

  • Jacques Frémont, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ottawa – Chair of the committee

  • Martine Lagacé, Associate Vice-President, Research, Office of the Vice-President, Research

  • Pierre Foucher, Full Professor, Faculty of Law, Common Law

  • Jérémie Séror, Director of Official Languages Bilingualism Institute and Associate Dean of the Faculty of Arts – ex officio member

  • Marika Giles Samson, Director, CCP – ex officio member

  • Richard Clément, Emeritus Professor, Faculty of Social Sciences – observer and resource person

In order to ensure the impartiality and independence of the Expert Panels’ decision-making, members of the Management Committee – with the exception of the CCP Director – do not have access to applications filed with the CCP.
