About Research Canada
Research Canada is a national, broad-based alliance dedicated to increasing investment and support in health research and health innovation through collaborative advocacy. We believe health research and innovation are a shared benefit and responsibility and an investment in Canada’s future. We engage and work with government, academia, industry and non-profit sectors to build support for balanced and long-term health research funding–investments that strengthen Canada’s innovation system and lead to better health, sustainable health care, new commercialization opportunities and skilled jobs for Canadians.
Our Mission: To improve the health and prosperity of all Canadians by championing Canada’s global leadership in health research and health innovation.
Research Canada is proud to have over seventy member organizations which represent the diverse Canadian health research and health innovation ecosystem. Visit our website to view the full list of Research Canada’s Members, Supporters and Partners.
The Parliamentary Health Research Caucus
The Parliamentary Health Research Caucus (PHRC) is a non-partisan, “owned by Parliamentarians” forum established in 2009 by Senator Wilbert Keon and Research Canada to engage elected officials in educational events that showcase Canadian health research and health innovation and to raise awareness about the social and economic benefits of Canada’s health research enterprise and health innovation system.
