Aid to Scholarly Journals grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program.

Funds can be used for the salaries, stipends, or related federal, provincial and institutional nondiscretionary benefits for editorial support staff (e.g., administrative staff, technicians). Funds can also be used for pertinent training of journal staff (e.g., technological training).
