With your help,
we can change that.

Over 11 million Canadians suffer with Neuromusculoskeletal pain and disability – each year.

More than heart disease, diabetes and mental illness – put together.

Scientifically validated research is vital to improve patient health, public policy and clinical practice outcomes.

Working in close collaboration with partners from within and outside our profession, CCRF invests in research you can trust. 


CCRF has already invested over $700,000 in Canadian NMSK related projects through its National Research Fund.

CCRF invests in scientifically sound projects with local, national and global impact. Request for Proposals (RFPs) are issued twice per year.

Our lean, 3-step submission process attracts dynamic projects from established and emerging researchers.
