Healthy and Productive Work, a joint initiative of CIHR and SSHRC, reflects the interplay between health and social sciences in responding to the growing interest in maintaining a healthy, productive and inclusive Canadian workforce. The goal of the Initiative is to develop, implement, evaluate and scale-up innovative, evidence-informed and gender-responsive solutions to foster the labour force participation of men and women with health issues (e.g., injuries, illnesses, chronic diseases, mental health challenges, and other conditions) and disabilities, as well as older workers and workers with caregiving responsibilities outside of their paid work. We aim to accomplish this by bringing together researchers, workers, employers, policy-makers, regulators, clinicians, insurers, service providers, workplace safety and insurance boards, unions, professional associations, and other stakeholders across sectors.

Partnership Development Grants are valued at up to $75,000 a year for two years. Each grant will be jointly funded by SSHRC and CIHR. The maximum annual investment per project will be $50,000 from CIHR and $25,000 from SSHRC.
