Research Funding News: Changes to CDA Operating Grants and Personnel Awards

Thank you for your interest in Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) research funding. Please note that our research program is currently under review.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the CDA’s research survey, which was circulated to Canadian diabetes researchers from August to September this year. We are appreciative of the insightful feedback we received.

After a thorough analysis of the survey data, we have begun drafting a new research strategy that not only addresses the voices of Canadian researchers, like you, but also recognizes and supports the CDA’s vision, mission, and mandate to fund the very best diabetes research in Canada and to help people with diabetes live healthier lives.

The results of the survey have been shared with the CDA’s National Research Council (NRC). The NRC will be holding a face-to-face meeting in early January 2017 to review and finalize the strategy, including the CDA’s application process and research policies.  Once that meeting is complete, we will unveil the new research plan in early February.

If you have any questions, please direct them to

We look forward to sharing our new research strategy with you.
