Brain Canada funding is allocated, first and foremost, on merit. The organization rewards excellence and innovation and is able to take risks to fund high-potential ideas. Funding recipients are selected through open and partnered competitions and rigorous international peer review. An exception is made for training awards where knowledge of the Canadian context is essential. Only applications judged to be at or above the high standard of excellence set by the relevant selection committees are funded.

Our international review process is designed to:

  • Reduce conflicts of interest which can result from a Canadian-own panel
  • Allow us to benchmark against international standards of excellence and innovation
  • Create a network of ambassadors and new connections for Canada
