The intent of the Partnerships for Health System Improvement (PHSI) program is to strengthen Canada's healthcare system through collaborative, applied and policy-relevant research. PHSI is Canada's premier health services and policy research competition and with its strong emphasis on partnerships and knowledge translation it is also a major resource for managers and policy makers who want relevant research to inform their decision-making. PHSI funds teams of decision makers and researchers to conduct applied health services and policy research. Because they participate throughout the research process the research results are more likely to be relevant to and used by decision makers. PHSI projects can last up to three years and receive up to a maximum of $400,000 from CIHR over the life of the project. Additional funding from external partners is required.

Applicants must secure partnership contributions from Project Specific partners and/or Competition Partners equivalent to a minimum of 20% of the total grant amount requested from CIHR. The partnership contribution can be a combination of cash and/or in-kind contributions. Note: 20% is the minimum requirement. There is no upper limit on partner contributions to a project.
