Healthy and Productive Work Initiative

In the summer of 2015, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) announced details of a research funding opportunity focused on improving the labour force participation of men and women with health conditions or disabilities.

Partnerships of research teams and workplace leaders are key to being a successful applicant to this funding opportunity. To that end, if you are an employer, union representative, professional association, clinician, disability management professional or policy-maker who is interested in learning more about this opportunity (and potentially working with researchers at the Institute), please send an e-mail to: healthy&
