CIHR is the primary source of federal funds for health research in Canada.
Other suggestions for funding are:
- Provincial and institutional funding competitions.
- Disease-related foundations (e.g. CANFAR, Heart and Stroke Foundation).
- Industry partners. A pharmaceutical or medical device company may provide direct funding for a project via their established investigator-initiated study funding mechanism, or they may consider donating the study intervention (e.g. drug or device).
- Hospital Foundations.
