As the representative voice of Canadian medical students, the Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS) represents you and your colleagues to many national medical organizations including the Canadian Medical Association, the College of Family Physicians, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and others.

Each fall and winter, the CFMS selects a new group of talented individuals to help represent medical students to these organizations and offers a chance to general CFMS members to be involved in shaping the future of medicine in Canada. Volunteering for these positions allows students to learn more about medical education, health promotion and more, all while acting as the voice of Canadian medical students.

CFMS Student Initiative Grants (SIG)  were established in response to the increasing number of medical student-led initiatives and the need for official financial support from our national student organization. Many successful projects have benefitted from direct CFMS funding including charitable, educational and social projects all spearheaded by medical students. Our goal is to assist students in realizing  innovative programs that promote interactions between CFMS students in member schools. Maximum funding for projects will be valued at $3000.
