(TORONTO) The Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation (CCRF) is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals (RFP) with up to $200,000 in new funding available for high-impact research projects.

“CCRF has been fostering excellence in musculoskeletal research for over 40 years by advancing the authoritative work of Canada’s chiropractic research community,” says CCRF chair, Dr. Chad Kulak. “As we continue to evolve and advance, we’re inviting qualified researchers to submit proposals designed to improve the lives of Canadian with a continued focus on our four priority areas  ̶  health systems,  population health, basic science and clinical science.”


“Our goal through this call is to continue to offer robust funding for projects that have the potential to create real change in the real world.” says Dr. Richard McIlmoyle, chair, CCRF Research Committee. “In the past we’ve invested in studies in an exciting range of areas; such as rehabilitation, sports sciences, seniors, women’s health, indigenous health and prescription drug management” adds Dr. McIlmoyle. “These investments will continue, with a clear eye on fresh initiatives that will demonstrate our profession is committed to evidence-based research addressing social, economic and health issues.”
