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.
In the 2017 Provincial Budget, Research Manitoba received a $2 million cut to its budget, which is now $15 million annually.
Research Manitoba is reviewing its organizational priorities and will align our programs with strategic goals identified through this strategic planning process. This could mean significant change for, and possible cancellation of, existing programs. Research Manitoba is currently analyzing feedback from a stakeholder survey, and anticipates having more information on 2018 programming available early in 2018.
We understand that this may bring about substantial changes and we greatly appreciate your patience as we work through this process.
