Welcome to CANFAR
The Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR) was founded in 1987 and exists to end HIV in Canada by funding innovative research, dynamic partnerships and national awareness programs.
Over its 30-year history, CANFAR has invested more than $21 million and awarded more than 400 grants to HIV and 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 through its national HIV youth awareness programs.
Our Spring Campaign and Event
On Friday, June 7, 2019, AIDSbeat will bring together the top legal minds in Toronto as they clash on-stage, not in the courtroom – in support of CANFAR’s mission to end HIV in Canada.
This year’s theme is Back to the Movies which will feature a glamorous, blockbuster evening, as bands pay tribute to their favourite stories from the silver screen. Learn more about the AIDSbeat bands, judges, silent auction and more.
