CCS/CIHR Cancer Survivorship Team Grants

The goal of the CCS/CIHR Cancer Survivorship Team Grant program is to improve the health outcomes for cancer survivors of all ages (pediatric, adolescent, young adult and adult) from the time of their cancer diagnosis until the time of their death or entry into palliative care. This program is not intended to focus on improving end-of-life care.

The intent of this funding opportunity is to support new intervention research designed to mitigate the challenges experienced along the survivorship journey, as well as the evaluation and validation of existing interventions to assess their potential for implementation as best practices.

The program goal will be achieved through the support of a network of multidisciplinary teams, each led by a nominated Principal Investigator and at least 2 co-Principal and/or co- Investigators, one of whom must be within their first five years as an independent researcher, drawn from at least 3 different regions of Canada (Atlantic Provinces, Central Canada, Prairie Provinces, West Coast, Northern Territories). Survivors and caregivers are expected to be engaged as full and active members of research teams.

Teams may request up to $500,000 per year for a maximum of $2,500,000 over a five-year period. Grants will be non-renewable. As the total budget for this competition is $10 million, it is anticipated that at least 4 teams will be funded in this competition. The engagement of additional partners may increase this number.

Registration due date: May 29, 2019
Relevance review results: mid-June, 2019
Full application deadline: September 10, 2019
Results announcement : November 2019
Anticipated start date: December 1, 2019
