Encyclopedia > Group of Thirteen (Canadian universities)

The Group of Thirteen, more commonly referred to as the G13 (or G-13), is a group of leading research-intensive universities in Canada. Formed over 10 years ago as an informal biannual meeting of university executive heads, the grouping is similar to the Australian Group of Eight, although it is not incorporated. The G13's primary activity is in joint research programmes. The chairmanship of the G13 rotates among the executive heads of the thirteen universities. There are currently 428,000 students enrolled in the 13 universities. This article does not cite any references or sources. ... Image File history File links Emblem-important. ...

The 13 organizations have within them 66% of all Canada Research Chairs nationwide. CRC allocations are proportional to the amount of grant funding from the three federal granting agencies (NSERC, CIHR, and SSHRC); thus, G13 institutions receive about two thirds of all government research funding in Canada.

G10DE: Data Exchange

The G10 data exchange (G10DE), founded in 1999, is a data exchange consortium made to facilitate comparative analysis and benchmarking for Canada's top universities. Comprising the institutional research directors at each of the G10 institutions, the G10DE would, through the formal and informal exchange of datasets and information, support the Executive Heads in the development and enhancement of the distinctive mission of the institutions. The G10DE was modelled after a similar data exchange consortium of leading American research universities.[2][3]


With the expansion of the G10 in 2006 to include the University of Calgary, Dalhousie University and the University of Ottawa, they will be participating in future data exchanges in the G13.


Endowments

Total endowment wealth

The G13 schools have some of the highest financial endowments in Canada. Although they are substantially less than the wealthiest US universities, they are approximately on par with the wealthiest universities in Asia and Europe. Most of the G13 schools have endowments of over $100 million. It should be noted that in the University of Toronto, constituent colleges hold endowments as well (not included in these figures). A financial endowment is a transfer of money or property donated to an institution, with the stipulation that it be invested, and the principal remain intact. ...

Rank Institution Endowment
1 University of Toronto $1.82 billion
2 University of British Columbia $876.8 million
3 McGill University $832.8 million
4 University of Alberta $751 million
5 Queen's University $660 million
6 McMaster University $449.2 million
7 University of Calgary $385 million
8 Dalhousie University $321 million
9 University of Western Ontario $218.8 million
10 University of Waterloo $157.3 million
11 Université Laval $105.3 million

Endowment per student

It should be noted that in the University of Toronto, constituent colleges hold endowments as well. Therefore, in some cases, the combined endowment per student exceeds other Canadian universities. At Trinity College, for example, investments totalling $64.7 million lift the endowment per student to $58,445. [4]

The G10 data exchange (G10DE) was modelled after a similar data exchange consortium of leading American research universities, and in a comparatively short period of time, the G10DE has produced a valuable set of comparative data. The scope of the G10DE continues to expand, and it holds promise for the development of additional benchmarking data in future."
