About the CFMSThe CFMS is an organization representing over 8,000 medical students from 15 Canadian medical student societies from coast to coast. We represent medical students to the public, to the federal government, and to national and international medical organizations.
The CFMS Strategic Innovation Fund Program was established in 2019 to provide support and funding to medical student initiative that are national or cross-regional in scope. The fund was established through a generous grant from the Canadian Medical Association (CMA). Through the SIF program, the CFMS aims to fund large-scale or national initiatives that advance the CFMS’ overarching goals and providing benefit to CFMS’ members at large. There is approximately $75,000 that the SIF Task Force can choose to distribute in the 2019-2020 fiscal year. For region-specific or local initiatives, please refer to the Student Initiatives Grant (SIG) program.
