CIHR launches new Equity and Diversity Questionnaire for applicants

As Canada's health research investment agency, CIHR manages over 100 funding competitions each year. As outlined in the CIHR Equity Strategy, we are committed to ensuring that all of our programs and peer review processes result in the fair and impartial treatment of all participants.

To fulfill this commitment, CIHR must collect data on a number of equity dimensions to allow us to identify and address potential inequities.

As of May 15, 2018, application participants for all CIHR programs must complete an Equity and Diversity Questionnaire.
