Funding centre



The FRQS (Fonds de recherche du Québec - Santé) is a non-profit funding agency created under the Act Respecting the Ministère du Développement économique, de l'Innovation et de l'Exportation (L.R.Q., c. M-30.01).

We report to the Minister of the Enseignement Supérieur, de la Recherche, de la Science et de la Technologie (MESRST) and our mandate is to implement government strategy with respect to human health research as presented in the Québec Research and Innovation Strategy.

The FRQS was established in 1964 by Québec's health department under the name Conseil de recherches médicales. A pioneer in both Québec and Canada, the FRQS advised the health minister in matters of medical research. Forty years later, the FRQS plays a leading role in planning and coordinating the development of health research in Québec.

The FRQS allocates $100 million annually in awards and grants for public-sector research into human health carried out today in universities and hospital-based research centres. We fund projects using any of the recognized methodologies (basic, clinical, epidemiological, public health, health services and the social determinants of health). To fulfil our mission and maximize the economic and health benefits of scientific investigation, we invest in:

-top-performing research investigators and students

-research centres, groups and networks

-excellence, innovation and the dissemination of knowledge

-social responsibility and ethical practices

-synergy and partnership
