As part of the Foundation's National Grants Program, support is offered for conferences, workshops or symposia which are relevant to the health of Canada's children. The purpose of the conference grants program is to support events which are organized by and/or for families with children with health challenges, including but not limited to children with acute illness, chronic illness, and disabilities. Eligible events will have a focus on information sharing between health professionals, community organizations, and families. Academic conferences are not eligible for funding.
There are three deadlines for applications each fiscal year:
