自 COVID-19 病毒疫情爆发以来，加拿大政府一直在于省、地区、以及国际伙伴写作，保护加拿大民众的健康与安全。当更多的国家开始需要解决 COVID-19 疫情问题时，加拿大政府正在向加拿大研究机构做出投资，研究新型冠状病毒，并开发能够抗击病毒的资源与方法。
为了更多地向全球抗击 COVID-19 疫情的行动做出贡献，卫生部长帕蒂·海度阁下与创新、科学与产业部长贝恩斯阁下宣布，将投资 2700 万加元，用于关于新型冠状病毒的研究经费。由于收到了大量经费申请，加拿大政府在原有的资金额度上追加 700 万加元投资，使得金额总数达到 2700万加元。这项投资将会支持加拿大全国 47 个研究团队，并且加快关于应对 COVID-19 疫情的研发、检测、以及实施。两位内阁部长与经济发展与官方语言部长乔美兰阁下（Mélanie Joly）和国库财长让·伊夫·杜克洛阁下一同宣布了这一项计划。
( Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, NSERC)、社会科学与人文研究理事会(Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, SSHRC)、加拿大研究协调委员会 (Canada Research Coordinating Committee, CRCC) ， 通 过 the New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF), the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and Genome Canada (GC)，向这些研究提供经济支持。
“加拿大研究人员是世界上最优秀的人群，这笔资金将会允许他们做出关于新型冠状病毒的重大研究。保护全体加拿大民众的健康与安全是我们的最优先关注的事物，这些得益于这项资金的研究将会对抑制 COVID-19 疫情做出贡献。”
“这项快速反应的协作项目将会动员加拿大最优秀的人员，并且与伙伴国家的专业知识进行写作， 同时向 COVID-19 疫情提供真实的解决方案。这项研究资金将会关注于全球事务，并关注那些疫情风险更高的欠发达国家的需求。”
Montreal, Quebec – Canadian Institutes of Health Research
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the Government of Canada has been working with provinces, territories, and international partners to protect the health and well-being of Canadians. As more countries begin to deal with COVID-19 outbreaks, the Government of Canada is investing in Canadian researchers to learn more about this novel coronavirus and to develop tools and resources to combat it.
To further contribute to global efforts to address the COVID-19 outbreak, today, the Honourable PattyHajdu, Canada’s Minister of Health, and the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Canada’s Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, announced an investment of nearly $27 million to fund coronavirus research. Due to the overwhelming response to the call for research applications, the Government of Canada increased its original investment from $7 million to $27 million. This investment will support 47 research teams from across Canada that will focus on accelerating the development, testing, and implementation of measures to deal with the COVID-19 outbreak. The Ministers made the announcement with the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, and the Honourable Yves Duclos, President of the Treasury Board.
The research will help inform clinical and public health responses, develop and evaluate diagnostic tools and vaccines, as well as create strategies to tackle misinformation, stigma, and fear. The Government of Canada is providing the funding for this research through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Canada Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC) through the New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF), the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and Genome Canada (GC).
“Canada’s researchers are some of the best in the world, and this funding will allow them to conduct groundbreaking research on a novel coronavirus. Protecting the health and well-being of all Canadians is our top priority, and the research conducted thanks to this funding will contribute to mitigating the outbreak of COVID-19.”
The Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Health
“Our government knows that science is at the heart of innovation and a top priority to keep Canadians safe and healthy. Today’s investment will go a long way to help support life-saving research, as we collaborate with international partners to manage the coronavirus outbreak.”
The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry
“This rapid-response collaboration mobilizes the best of what Canada can offer, paired with strong expertise from partner countries, to contribute towards real solutions to address COVID-19. The research funded through this initiative will have a global scope, in recognition of the needs of the less developed countries at high risk from this outbreak.”
The Honourable Karina Gould, Minister of International Development
“Research is a vital component of the response to emerging disease outbreaks. The research to be undertaken by the successful teams will help to answer some of our most pressing questions about COVID-19 and help to develop the tools we need to effectively respond to this global public health emergency.”
Dr. Teresa Tam, Chief Public Health Officer of Canada
Projects funded through this call will build on existing networks, infrastructure and relationships with partners in Canada and internationally.
