In the 2017 Provincial Budget, Research Manitoba received a $2 million cut to its budget, which is now $15 million annually.
While Research Manitoba traditionally launches our Trainee, New Investigator, and Mid-Career Investigator Health Competitions December 1st, the launch of the 2018-2019 competition has been postponed. Please be aware that with our recent budget cut and current strategic planning process, there could be significant changes for, and possible cancellations of, existing programs. We are currently working through this process and we will share more information in the last week of April, 2018.
We understand that this may bring about substantial changes and we greatly appreciate your patience as we work through this.
One of the ways Research Manitoba builds capacity for health research across Manitoba is through a peer-reviewed competition for its grants and awards to researchers. These funds support research in all four health research categories: biomedical; clinical; health systems and services; and the social, cultural and environmental factors that affect the health of populations.
Detailed information about each of Research Manitoba’s health research funding programs is available by clicking on a program name in the column to the right or from our 2017 Finance & Administration Guide and the Program Guides.
