CIHR Healthy and Productive Work - Partnership Grants

Sponsor CIHR
Internal Deadline2017-10-27
External Deadline2017-11-01

Healthy and Productive Work, a joint initiative of CIHR and SSHRC, reflects the interplay between health and social sciences in responding to the growing interest in maintaining a healthy, productive and inclusive Canadian workforce.

The goal of the Healthy and Productive Work Initiative is to engage stakeholders in developing, implementing, evaluating and scaling-up innovative, evidence-informed and gender-responsive solutions to foster the labour force participation of men and women with health issues (e.g., injuries, illnesses, chronic diseases, mental health challenges, and other conditions) and disabilities, as well as older workers and workers with caregiving responsibilities outside of their paid work.

The Healthy and Productive Work initiative focuses on interventions which may include but are not limited to accommodations, tools and policies that address modifications to work and work environments designed to enable participation in meaningful work. Both formal and informal interventions at various levels will be considered (individual workers, organizations, workplaces, sectors, policy/regulatory, educational institutions, the health care system, etc.). Flexible work arrangements, physical modifications to the work environment, and processes intended to enable an employee to return to or remain at work, as well as policy interventions aimed at supporting accommodation, are all meaningful examples.

Partnership Grants

Partnership Grants (PG) provide support for new and existing formal partnerships to advance research, research training and/or knowledge mobilization through mutual co-operation and sharing of intellectual leadership, as well as through resources as evidenced by cash and/or in-kind contributions. Partnership Grants are intended for large teams working in formal collaboration between postsecondary institutions and/or organizations of various types.

A two-phased approach is being used to fund teams responding to this call.

In Phase 1 (now complete), CIHR and SSHRC provided Partnership Development Grants to support new and/or existing partnerships to foster new research and related activities.

In Phase 2, Partnership Development Grant applicants who were successful in Phase 1 are invited to submit an application for a Partnership Grant. This will provide support for partnered initiatives that advance research and related activities pertaining to the Healthy and Productive Work joint initiative.
