Memorial Deadline: Friday 20th, September 2019

External Deadline: Wednesday 25th, September 2019


CIHR’s mandate is to excel, according to internationally accepted standards of scientific excellence, in the creation of new knowledge and its translation into improved health, more effective health services and products, and a strengthened health care system through a unique interdisciplinary structure made up of virtual Institutes and Initiatives. The Institutes and Initiatives are networks of researchers and stakeholders brought together to focus on important health problems, with each Institute/Initiative dedicated to a specific area of focus, linking and supporting researchers pursuing common goals.

One of the mechanisms for the Institutes/Initiatives to achieve their mandates is by offering planning and/or dissemination grants within the Institute Community Support (ICS) Program. The Planning and Dissemination Grants are intended to provide support for planning and/or dissemination activities consistent with the mandate of CIHR and relevant to CIHR Institutes, or Initiatives.
