“On behalf of Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital and our Bloorview Research Institute, I welcome the news of the federal government’s $450 million funding package to help Canada’s academic research community during the global pandemic.
As a leader in childhood disability research, we, like all hospital-based institutes, rely heavily on external sources of revenue from government grants, philanthropy and industry to sustain our operations and employ our scientists and staff.
This urgently needed support recognizes the importance of Canadian healthcare-based research by our federal government. This financial support will enable our labs to continue conducting research that creates the most meaningful and healthy futures for all children, youth and families.”
