Each year, through our strategic initiatives and open calls for proposals, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation makes significant investments in research projects, fellowships and other cause-related work.

For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - Ontario Region Board of Directors approved grant allocations of $7.5 million!

2015 Grants Applications

The Foundation's funding decisions support our goal of having the broadest possible impact on breast health and breast cancer by funding relevant work that responds to the needs of those most affected by the disease. Approved initiatives build knowledge and improve practice in all areas of breast cancer, including prevention, early detection, treatment, care, support and education, and demonstrate innovation and quality. They were recommended for funding based on a rigorous peer review process.

Our thanks to those who applied for funding during our latest grant rounds and congratulations to all successful applicants. We also thank the many donors, supporters, and volunteers whose generous contributions to the Foundation this year have made these investments possible.

  RESEARCH   FELLOWSHIPS

Because breast cancer is a complex disease, there are many issues to be explored. The Ontario Region's Research Grant Program provides funding over a period of one to three years to support projects in a broad range of research areas, including the biology of breast cancer, etiology, primary prevention, early detection, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, cancer control, survivorship, outcomes research, or scientific model systems.  

 Funded research projects must:

  • Respond to demonstrated or emerging breast cancer and breast health needs 

  • Build on existing knowledge or expertise 

  • Demonstrate innovation 

  • Share results with the breast cancer community

​The quality of tomorrow's breast cancer researchers and front-line health care workers depends upon the support and training young professionals receive today. Not only are recipients of Ontario Region fellowships gaining expertise through advanced and specialized training in the breast cancer field, they are also making significant contributions to our knowledge and understanding of breast cancer.

Some of the areas pursued by fellowship recipients include graduate study; innovative research; improved clinical practice, including learning; or new methodologies for diagnosis and treatment.
