Co-RIG Program Phase I Projects

The Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine (FAFM) appreciated the opportunity to consider the merits of over 100 proposed initiatives in the context of the Co-RIG Program Phase I guiding principles, established by FAFM together with the CMA Foundation.

Family physicians across Canada submitted compelling applications. Unfortunately, the Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine and the CMA Foundation are unable to fund every project. We thank all of the applicants who submitted a proposal for funding in Phase I of the Co-RIG Program. The dedication of Canadian family physicians to bettering the lives of Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic is admirable.

The Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine (FAFM) at the College of Family Physicians of Canada is pleased to announce the recipients of the Co-RIG Phase I Program grants.
