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.
CANFAR’s work in ending the HIV epidemic in Canada would not be possible without the support and generosity of our donors.
Our Fall Campaign
#BecomingFamily is the theme of this year’s Bloor Street Entertains. The Bloor Street Entertains family is comprised of our guests and patrons, sponsors, volunteers, venue partners, CANFAR ambassadors and more – this year, we want to highlight your contribution and remind the Toronto community that our common goal of ending the HIV epidemic in Canada needs to remain a priority.
Your contribution to the Bloor Street Entertains Campaign will help support innovative HIV/AIDS research beyond the night of the event and help CANFAR reach the goal of ending the HIV epidemic in Canada.
