The Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research’s (CIMVHR) annual forum, focused on military, veteran, family, and public safety personnel health research, will be hosted virtually for the first time due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
With 71,500 Regular Force members in the Canadian Armed Forces, 30,000 Reserve Force members, 60,600 military families and 629,300 Veterans, we have a significant population with unique risks, exposures and experiences that demands new standards of protection, prevention and care for the ill and injured.
Each year, CIMVHR works to engage existing academic research resources, facilitate new research, increase research capacity and foster knowledge translation.
This work is showcased each year, when thought leaders from the government, academia, industry and philanthropic sectors gather at our Forum to present new research, exchange ideas, share insight, learn and collaborate.
CIMVHR is a university centre based within the Faculty of Health Sciences at Queen’s. The only pan-national institute within the military, veteran, and family health research international landscape, CIMVHR is a network of 45 Canadian university members and 13 global affiliates, serving as the hub for research, relationships, and impact within the academic military, veteran, and family health research community.
