Why is CIHR doing this exercise?
we want to ask you about your health research priorities. Our goal is to
support health research that makes a real difference in the lives of Canadians.
Since we have limited resources, we want to hear from you about where you think
we should invest our funds and what our future priorities should be. Check out

What is CIHR?
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is Canada’s federal funding agency for health research. Each year, we invest about $1 billion of your taxpayer dollars to support around 13,000 researchers who are working to improve our health and strengthen our health care system.Check out our video, HealthResearch for Canadians, to learn more about us.
Why does health research matter?
As Canadians, we consistently rank health and health care among our top priorities, and it’s not hard to see why:
We all know someone affected by health issues. Health research is the key to finding solutions to these health challenges. The life-saving drugs, procedures, health care services, preventative measures, and medical devices we enjoy today all started as a research idea.Check out our series, Health research in action, to learn more about the impact of health research.
