CIHR knows there are barriers that make it harder for persons with disabilities to participate in research and the research funding system. We commit to working with persons with disabilities, diverse disability communities, other research funding agencies, and academic institutions to remove barriers to our research funding programs and to end systemic ableism in the research funding system.
