The Movember Foundation is investing $1.5 million over 2 years towards innovation grants to create change across a range of men's health behaviours. It is our hope that these types of programs will ultimately lead to significant improvement in Canadian men's health. The Movember Foundation challenges Canadians to be creative and put forward innovative, outside the box concepts, products or services that disrupt long held assumptions/myths about men and their health in order to get men to do things differently.

Projects need to be developed from the male perspective and should be co-developed with men. They also should consider the role of key influencers in men's life, especially those that have some influence over their health and taking action (e.g., partners, friends and family). **Please view sponsor website for full details**
