About the grant program


Canada’s health care system is facing significant challenges― an aging population, funding issues and poor access to health care services, among others. Many Canadians experience these impacts daily.


At Joule, we believe that there is a better way—to serve patients; to practice as a physician; to manage health care systems; and to innovate in health care.


We believe physicians are uniquely positioned to drive change in the industry and help build a better future for all Canadians.


Our annual grant program drives physician-led innovation by providing flexible funding to CMA members who are making a difference in health care.


Beyond funding, our grants open many doors
