The Digital Research Alliance of Canada (the Alliance) offers several resources to help researchers comply with the policy and follow best practices in data management planning: 

Many of these resources were created by the Alliance Data Management Planning Expert Group, which works to promote and nurture a strong data culture in Canada, and to support researchers and institutions in their data management planning needs. For more information about DMPs please contact
