Community-Based Research Canada

Request for Proposals: Cannabis and Mental Health

Mental Health Commission of Canada is currently seeking Requests for Proposals for Community-Based Research Projects in Cannabis and Mental Health. The purpose of the Community-Based Research (CBR) funding is to address knowledge gaps in the relationship between cannabis and mental health. This opportunity is also aimed at building research capacity among people with lived and living experience of cannabis use and/or mental health problems and illnesses, and by other priority populations. Between 2020 and 2022, the MHCC will fund up to 12 CBR projects. The maximum funding for an approved research project is up to $50,000 per year ($100,000 over two years). Proposal development support is available upon request (see the final section for further details).

If you would like to receive proposal support from expert community-based hubs  please contact Lynette Schick at lschick@mentalhealthcommission.ca by May 15th, 2020 to express interest.

Application deadline: May 29, 2020
