CanCOVID is an open science collective dedicated to rapidly mobilizing and sharing knowledge to support Canada’s COVID‑19 response. We help connect researchers with graduate trainees, policy makers with COVID-19-related researchers, researchers with funding opportunities, and researchers with other leaders in their field. Our purpose is to support the scientific effort and community in their work through encouraging multidisciplinary collaborations and helping to connect people and resources to enable rapid knowledge mobilization and science-to-policy action. We are also committed to helping to provide our government partners with a better line of sight to existing and emerging COVID‑19 science and research.

Our members engage and collaborate with an interdisciplinary network through a Slack platform, including Canada’s leading scientists, researchers, and academics. They receive the latest insights, can share their work through Slack or through our Speakers Series and Workshops, and can find potential collaborators to work with on COVID‑19 initiatives.

For your convenience, we have listed on this page our media contact information, press releases, a glimpse of our knowledge products, past events, and our social media platforms.
