is asking your opinion about the recent cuts to NSERC RTI and MRS
Programs: Please participate in this important process and ensure that
your viewpoints are heard by completing the related questionnaire
accessed by logging in to member services at http://www.cap.ca/services. This is excerpts from the letter sent to CAP members: "NSERC recently announced a moratorium on the MRS program (http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/Professors-Professeurs/RTII-OIRI/MRS-ARM_eng.asp) and that the RTI program would be phased out (http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/Professors-Professeurs/RTII-OIRI/RTI-OIR_eng.asp) as part of the Government of Canada's efforts to return to balanced budgets.
The CAP is now soliciting your input on all of these recent
developments, as was indicated in my recent letter to the membership.
You can participate in this important process and ensure that your
viewpoints are considered by responding to the questionnaire accessed by
logging in to member services at http://www.cap.ca/services
and then selecting the 2012 NSERC Survey link on the left. We have
tried to make the survey fairly comprehensive in order to obtain maximum
value. It nonetheless takes only ten minutes or so to complete. It is
vital that we get input from a significant proportion of members to
enable the CAP to formulate a set of recommendations that accurately
reflects the views of its membership at large. J. Michael Roney, P.Phys. President, Canadian Association of Physicists"
