The Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation (CCRF) is Canada's oldest and most established national funding body which has been granting research funds for worthy chiropractic projects since 1976.
The CCRF is dedicated to facilitating clinical, biomedical, health services, and population health research, relative to the practice of chiropractic.
The funding grants provided by CCRF have traditionally supported research in Canada's health care system and Canada's health research system, in order to mitigate the burdens of health, disease, illness, injury and disability that so many Canadians needlessly endure.
Currently CCRF is funded by chiropractic association provincial donations, Foundation memberships, fundraising events, general donations and partnering with government agencies such as the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
The Foundation’s main focus is to create a university-based Chiropractic Research Chair/Professorship in each province of Canada. It takes $500,000 to create and support a university-based Chiropractic Research Chair or Professorship.
For example, the Foundation recently established the CCRF UBC Professorship in Spine Biomechanics and Neurophysiology and this position is held by Dr. Jean-Sébastien Blouin DC, PhD at the University of British Columbia. It was funded with $500,000 to start and his research has had a very significant impact on both the scientific community and the health of Canadians.
The CCRF has supported similar Chairs/Professorships at the University of Regina, University of Manitoba, Dalhousie University and University of Toronto.
