Health Research Caucus
Advancements in health research improve our lives and lead to tangible economic benefits for Canada.
Through the Health Research Caucus (HRC), Research Canada engages elected officials, policy-makers and key industry stakeholders to advocate for long-term, sustainable health research funding that spurs innovation and ensures that Canadian citizens are among the healthiest in the world.
Advocating for excellence, educating for change
Research Canada established the HRC in 2009, bringing together Canada’s leading researchers with parliamentarians of all stripes for an exchange of ideas. Caucus events offer parliamentarians an opportunity to learn about recent and exciting developments arising from the laboratories of Canada’s world-leading health researchers.
