Science Leadership Council


The Science Leadership Council (SLC) is a working committee which falls within the Compute Canada management structure. The group meets regularly (typically every two weeks) to discuss strategic directions for research support, science policy, assessment of science needs (e.g. SPARC consultation results), and other current topics and special projects. It is comprised of disciplinary and technology development team leads representing a wide range of disciplines, as well as four researchers appointed by the four regional organizations.
