Welcome to CANFAR
The Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR) was founded in 1987 and aims to end the HIV epidemic in Canada by funding innovative research, national awareness programs and dynamic partnerships.
Over the past three decades, CANFAR has invested more than $21 million and awarded more than 400 grants to HIV/AIDS research projects that have led to tremendous breakthroughs in HIV prevention, testing, access to treatment, stigma, and the search for a cure. In addition, CANFAR annually reaches thousands of Canadian youth and educators through its national youth HIV awareness programs.
