Our Advocacy Program
Research Canada’s Advocacy Program is designed to foster relationships and understanding among Canada’s elected officials and policymakers. Working closely with our Members, Partners and Supporters, we strive to build awareness across the federal government and its many departments for the value of our Canadian health research and innovation ecosystem as a catalyst to improve the health, well-being and economic prosperity of Canadians.
Our Policy Initiatives
Research Canada is an advocacy organization engaged in influencing the public policy process directly and indirectly. In terms of the latter, the organization undertakes an education program that demonstrates the value proposition of health research and health innovation through activities such as National Public Opinion Polls and the Parliamentary Health Research Caucus (PHRC).
Research Canada also plays an important role in directly influencing policy through its Policy Engagement Committee (PEC), and is dedicated to advancing health research and health innovation through a series of activities focused on creating policy work products and lobbying government directly.
