The CIHR Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) will provide funding for applications that are consistent with the mandate of the Institute and those that support the development of the next generation of leaders within ICR’s mandate area.

CIHR’s mandate is to excel, according to internationally accepted standards of scientific excellence, in the creation of new knowledge and its translation into improved health, more effective health services and products, and a strengthened health care system. CIHR integrates research through a unique interdisciplinary structure made up of virtual Institutes and Initiatives. The Institutes and Initiatives are networks of researchers and stakeholders brought together to focus on important health problems, with each Institute and Initiative dedicated to a specific area of focus, linking and supporting researchers pursuing common goals.

One of the mechanisms for Institutes and Initiatives to achieve their mandates is by offering planning and/or dissemination grants within the Institute/Initiative Community Support (ICS) Program. The Planning and Dissemination Grants are intended to provide support for planning and/or dissemination activities (either virtual or in-person) consistent with the mandate of CIHR and relevant to CIHR Institutes and Initiatives.
