Tier 2 Chairs cannot be renewed for a third term, as per the regulations from the CRC program.
Although the CRC program permits renewals of Tier 1 Chairs for a third term in rare exceptional circumstances, it is Mount Allison’s present position that such renewals will not be considered.
All policies that govern the staffing of Canada Research Chair positions at Mount Allison University are administered by Human Resources and the university’s Collective Agreement with the Mount Allison Faculty Association.
It is acknowledged that these policies may change over time in response to the action plan on equity, diversity, and inclusion. Below is the current utilization of available CRC allocations as well as Mount Allison's CRC EDI Target Setting Plan for 2021-2029.

As reflected in our public endorsement of the Dimensions program charter principles, Mount Allison University is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) related to the Canada Research Chairs Program and the broader research enterprise of the university.
Named academic chairs (or professorships) are intended to enhance the academic and research missions of the University.
Individuals appointed to a named chair, normally drawn from the academic staff of the University, shall develop, support, and enhance academic and research programs through their engagement in scholarly activities.
