The CFMS Strategic Innovation Fund Program was established in 2019 to provide support and funding to medical student initiative that are national or cross-regional in scope. The fund was established through a generous grant from the Canadian Medical Association (CMA). Through the SIF program, the CFMS aims to fund large-scale or national initiatives that advance the CFMS’ overarching goals and providing benefit to CFMS’ members at large. There is approximately $75,000 that the SIF Task Force can choose to distribute in the 2019-2020 fiscal year.
