A variety of resources are included with this membership. They are listed in the table below, which also makes note of overlapping or complementary supports provided at the University of Waterloo.

Note: The NCFDD is an American organization. It includes members from a number of countries, including several from Canada, but you should use caution when considering some of the information listed on their site. For instance, the publishing and job market information is specific to the United States, and some of the information about planning, writing, submitting and defending a dissertation does not address specifics that need to be taken into account at Waterloo.
