Science and Research


Health Canada recognizes the value of supporting research in order to discover new and better ways to deal with the health concerns of today and tomorrow.

The federal government's Visiting Fellowships Program provides financial support for scientists so that they can work with Canadian government laboratories and research institutions, including those at Health Canada. This program allows developing scientists to work with experienced Health Canada scientists and researchers in a variety of science fields.

Health Canada is working with partners to support a Chair in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) Treatment and Care Research. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support an investigator (with less than seven years of independent research experience) bringing new innovative approaches, including translational research, to the treatment and/or care of autism spectrum disorders. Research will be relevant to the following areas: improvement of treatment and/or care for ASD; and/or approaches for the translation of research evidence into better treatment and/or care for ASD.
