CIHR is Canada's major federal funding agency for health research. Its objective is to excel, according to internationally accepted standards of scientific excellence, in the creation of new knowledge and its translation into improved health for Canadians, more effective health services and products and a strengthened Canadian health care system.


The CIHR Open Operating Grant Program (OOGP) provides operating funds to support research proposals in all areas of health research, including randomized controlled trials.


The main objectives of OOGP are to:


  • Support original, high quality projects or teams/programs of research
  • Support individual researchers and groups of researchers
  • Support research in all areas and disciplines with relevance to health
  • Contribute to the creation and use of health-related knowledge
  • Contribute to the dissemination, commercialization/knowledge translation, and use of health related knowledge
  • Develop and maintain Canadian health research capacity, including research training
