A brief was released jointly last night (pdf) by 7 Canadian national organizations:

  1. Association of Canadian Academic Healthcare Organizations(ACAHO)
  2. Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC
  3. BIOTECanada
  4. Canada’s Research-Based Pharmaceutical Companies (Rx&D)
  5. Health Charities Coalition of Canada (HCCC)

Update: the Brief calls for Government action in four areas:

  • Tax policy (the BIOTECanada asks, plus measures to encourage charitable contributions);
  • Continued investment in world-class infrastructure;
  • Support for research and management talent in research and innovation; and
  • Increased investment in discovery research (granting councils and a $100 million increase for CIHR)
