Issue: Increased Research Funding

Every day, 27 Canadians are diagnosed with a brain tumour. While successful treatments do exist, there is no cure. As the leading organization in Canada focused on funding brain tumour research, we are the only group dedicated to overcoming this deadly disease.

Thanks to the support of donors, research funds are distributed every year to researchers across Canada who are examining the cause of and cure for brain tumours. 

The Canadian Cancer Research Alliance publishes an annual review of investment in cancer research in Canada. Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada submits our contribution to this effort this publication. You can download the most recent edition of this report which tracks research investments between 2005-2009 in English and French

We also work towards increased funding for brain tumour research through partnerships and collaboration with other organizations including:

  • National Brain Tumour Society, learn about this project focused on Developmental Neurobiology
  • Brain Tumour Funders' Collaborative, learn about this project here
  • Neurological Health Charities Canada which is a leading a number of research projects into neurological health conditions. These projects will highlight details about, "the incidence and prevalence, impact, risk and health service utilization of our priority conditions, the final culmination of this work will result in a picture of the neurological landscape of Canada."
