Funding opportunity

The CIHR Healthy Cities Research Initiative (HCRI) is pleased to announce an upcoming new funding opportunity: Data Analysis Using Existing Databases and Cohorts. The intent of this funding opportunity is to highlight and encourage the use of previously funded cohort, administrative, and survey data. Data platforms that allow access to and/or linkage of multiple datasets include the Canadian Urban Environmental Health Research Consortium (CANUE). There will be three funding streams: one stream in cancer prevention and control, another in reproductive, maternal, child, and youth health, as well as a stream in healthy cities intervention research. CIHR will be hosting webinar(s) to support researchers interested in participating in the healthy cities intervention stream. The details will be posted shortly on CIHR website. Statistics Canada, CMHC and CANUE will also be holding a two-hour webinar to provide more information on datasets available that are relevant to healthy cities research on June 25, 2019 (1:00 – 3:00). Applicants must register to participate.

CRDCN National Policy Challenge: the winners of the 2018-19 competition

We are pleased to announce that Karen Ugarte Bravo is the grand winner of the very first CRDCN National Policy Challenge for her analysis of the impact of mandatory universal pharmaceutical insurance on prescription opioid use. Ramsha Jaweed who investigated the economic outcomes of privately sponsored married female refugees, and Rafael Silva Ramirez and Dominic Gagnon who examined the disability-adjusted life expectancy of Aboriginal Canadians won the second and third prize respectively. Congratulations as well to the other finalists: all of them had previously been carefully chosen by our selection committee for the quality of their projects among over 40 proposals received at the preliminary stage. The five-member jury was impressed by the high quality of the research results and the policy implications presented to them yesterday which made their mandate all the more difficult to carry out. The CRDCN feels privileged to support such highly gifted young researchers and is thrilled by the outcome of this first competition organized in partnership with SAS Canada and Statistics Canada. We look forward to hosting another Challenge in 2019-20, the details of which will be announced shortly.
