The Research and Education Foundation

About Us

Since 1994, the Research and Education Foundation (REF) has funded hundreds of awards, grants, and scholarships to family physicians, medical students, and residents to support their learning, continuing education initiatives, and research in family medicine. Awards recognize the care and commitment of those in or considering the family medicine discipline to provide the best patient care to communities across Canada.

Support family medicine for a healthy Canada!

Consider making a contribution to the REF today to support the family doctors of today and tomorrow. You can help the REF make a big difference in family medicine. The Research and Education Foundation is the only registered charity in Canada (registration # 88828 8669) that represents and raises funds for family medicine research and education. The REF awards approximately $500,000 in more than 200 grants, scholarships, and awards to College members and $250,000 in funding to College projects each year.
