Healthy Canadians Grants

Healthy Canadians Grants are designed to provide support for community-run initiatives that:

  • improve the quality of life for patients and vulnerable populations living in those communities; and
  • have a positive impact on the community as a whole and the lives of Canadians.

The CMA, in partnership with the CMA Foundation, is committed to supporting innovative, grassroots health initiatives. Physicians, medical learners, patients and the public all benefit when communities can deliver highly valued programs. Investing in these programs is one way the CMA and the CMA Foundation can build towards our vision of a vibrant profession and a healthy population.

Theme for 2018: seniors’ wellness

Different themes will be identified as part of the Healthy Canadians Grants criteria. These themes will target issues that have a significant impact on health in Canada. The theme for 2018 is seniors’ wellness. With these grants, we’re aiming to make a tangible difference in the lives of seniors, their families, and the physicians who care for them.
