On July 15, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) announced its funding decisions for the 2014 Foundation Scheme 1st Live Pilot; it was disappointing to see no Nova Scotian researchers were listed as funded.

The Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation is hosting a national competition for The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) in order to identify two Evidence Review Synthesis Centres (ERSC). The Centres will be expected to produce systematic reviews in order to support the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (Task Force) guidelines and recommendations.

The Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Atlantic Canada. This ninth annual program was created by Progress magazine and Best Companies Group. This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Atlantic Canada, benefiting the region's economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 31 companies.

The NSHRF is proud to announce that we have been awarded the 2015 Mainstay Award for Small Business by the Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) of Nova Scotia. This is awarded to a small business (fewer than 20 employees or full-time equivalents) demonstrating an exemplary health and safety program, innovation and proven injury prevention and/or return to work track record.
