Environmental Noise Research and Government Funding
AbstractThe purpose of this article was to review the various Canadian funding mechanisms and sources available to the environmental noise researcher. At the same time, the extent of environmental noise research in Canada would be realized. Once the information from the various government agencies had been gathered and reviewed, it became apparent that there are two types of funding mechanisms available: (1) general objective research, (2) specific objective research. Generally speaking, each mechanism is geared towards a specific type of noise research, the results of which are not often applicable to the objectives or goals of the "other" mechanism. In other words, a strong co-ordinated effort does not exist between the two means of funding.
