About the CIHR Clinical Trials Fund: Announced in Spring 2022, the Clinical Trials Fund earmarked $250M across three funding streams to grow and strengthen Canada’s clinical trials infrastructure, training, and research through 2025. It is an integral component of Canada's $2.2 billion investment under the Biomanufacturing and Life Sciences Strategy, which brings together a suite of federal programming to achieve two main objectives: (1) better preparing Canada to respond to pandemics and other health emergencies; and (2) supporting an innovative, high growth domestic life sciences sector.
