#2: Public Health Agency of Canada: Multi-sectoral Partnerships to Promote Healthy Living and Prevent Chronic Disease

The Public Health Agency of Canada (Agency) is pleased to invite eligible organizations to submit a “Letter of Intent” (LOI) to advance innovative, multi-sectoral approaches to promote healthy living and prevent chronic disease. Multi-sectoral approaches involving all segments of society — communities, academia, the charitable and not-for-profit sector and the private sector — are required to address complex social issues such as childhood obesity and the prevention of chronic diseases. Complex public health challenges defy single solution approaches developed in isolation. By engaging multiple sectors of society, partners can leverage knowledge, expertise, reach and resources, allowing each to do what it does best, in working towards the common shared goal of producing better health outcomes for Canadians.

The Agency is currently advancing a variety of partnership arrangements and funding models to promote a more effective use of its grants and contributions investments, focused on achieving demonstrable results. This strategic investment approach represents a new way of working through innovative partnerships, in collaboration with the private sector in particular.

The application process under this invitation consists of two stages. The first stage is the submission of an LOI, which will outline your project concept. Based on the outcomes of a peer review process, applicants whose LOIs are successful will be invited to submit a full proposal for funding consideration. Under this invitation there is no deadline for this LOI process, LOIs will be accepted on a continual basis.
