Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research
The Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR) is an independent leader in Veterans health research in Canada. With a network of academic researchers from across Canada, it serves as a focal point for 45 Canadian universities who have agreed to work together in addressing the health research requirements of the Canadian military, Veterans and their families.
The Legion was one of the founding supporters of the CIMVHR Forum, recognizing its important work in identifying Veterans health issues, researching possible solutions and bringing them forward for debate, discussion and testing.
The Legion supports research by awarding an annual Master’s level scholarship through the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR) to a student specializing in Military and Veterans Health Research. Ongoing, focussed research is critical for the care and support of Canada’s Veterans. View past recipients.
