Canada Brain Research Fund

Brain Canada is dedicated to connecting and strengthening Canada’s entire brain research community. This is made possible by the Canada Brain Research Fund (CBRF), an innovative arrangement between the Government of Canada (through Health Canada) and Brain Canada Foundation. Leveraging this support from the Government of Canada (through Health Canada), Brain Canada is uniquely placed to convene the brain research community, sustaining and strengthening partnerships while inspiring new donors and supporting bold ideas.
