International Development Research Centre

The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is a public corporation created by the Parliament of Canada in 1970 to help developing countries use science and technology to find practical, long-term solutions to the social, economic, and environmental problems they face. Support is directed toward developing an indigenous research capacity to sustain policies and technologies that developing countries need to build healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous societies.

The Board of Governors of the International Development Research Centre is composed of a Chairperson, the President and not more than 12 other governors appointed by the Governor in Council.
