CABHI’s Spark Program Now Accepting Applications!

The Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) has officially launched the third round of funding for our Spark Program.

This program provides up to $50,000 (CAD) in project funding to support the development of innovative solutions informed by the experience of point-of-care staff working with older adults.

Through this funding opportunity, CABHI invites staff working at Canadian not-for-profit healthcare organizations and Seniors Quality Leap Initiative (SQLI) members to apply for funding to develop or refine their grass-roots, early-stage solutions.  In total, there is up to $1 million (CAD) in funding available to support new innovation projects.
