The objective of this competition is to award a grant that will encourage the formulation of a project, either for drafting a research protocol on an original problem or for the start-up of a new research team working on an original problem. In either case, the problem studied must emerge from a clinical setting and/or have a direct impact on the clinical setting. In addition, it is important to demonstrate how the grant received will support your future research.

RECIPIENTS WILL RECEIVE A MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF $10,000 PER PROJECT, for a period of 18 mounths, following the granting OF FUNDS.


This year, the New initiatives budget will be enhanced by the contribution of the Habilitas Foundation and the CIUSSS West-Central-Montreal (CCOMTL), who will support projects specifically addressing the needs of youth and young adults aged 21-35, from among the projects that meet the criteria of the New Initiatives 2023-2024 program. Please note that the overall competition is open to all rehabilitation topics and clientele.


Many thanks to the Habilitas Foundation and the CCOMTL for supporting clinical research!
