Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Partnerships 

Strategic partnerships are a key element of The Kidney Foundation of Canada’s research program.  Very often, these partnership opportunities are with The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). Comprised of 13 targeted research institutes, CIHR is Canada’s federal funding agency for health research.   

Strategic partnership allows the Foundation to contribute to the funding and development of larger, more intricate projects and networks which may fall outside the scope of our standard funding opportunities.  These partnership opportunities help to leverage donor support, often increasing each donated dollar exponentially, to create a possibility of lasting impact. 

Strategic partnership opportunities continue to represent an important priority for Foundational investment.  To learn more about some of our ongoing partnerships, please see below.
