CIHR is the primary source of federal funds for health research in Canada; other suggestions for funding are:

  • Disease-related foundations (e.g. Heart and Stroke Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation).
  • Industry partners. A pharmaceutical or medical device company may not provide direct funding for a project, but they may consider donating the study intervention (e.g. drug or device).
  • St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation.
  • The Providence Research website lists some awards and funding opportunities.
