Roche Canada Funding Request Tool

At Roche Canada, patients and science are at the heart of everything we do. Thus, we welcome opportunities to invest in initiatives and collaborate with organizations that drive personalized healthcare forward. We are committed to delivering meaningful benefits to patients and a sustainable healthcare system.  

Funding Opportunities

Roche Canada offers funding support in the form of sponsorships, grants, and international conference support (ICS).

We prioritize funding requests that:

  1. Align with our focus areas and create opportunities in new areas, like artificial intelligence, innovation and real world evidence.
  2. Improve patient care and outcomes.
  3. Advance medical research and education.

Roche Canada also offers funding support in the form of philanthropic donations. We consider requests that explicitly align with our approach to philanthropy, which is rooted in a deep dedication to creating a better future for all.

We look to make a difference in these four areas:

  1. Humanitarian and Social Projects
  2. Science and Education Projects
  3. Culture and Arts Projects
  4. Community and Environment Projects

Applications for all four funding types are accepted throughout the year.


Roche can only consider funding requests submitted on behalf of and intended for eligible applicants and initiatives. 

For details on eligibility criteria, please review the Roche Canada Funding Resource.

Evaluation Process

Every funding request received will be evaluated separately for alignment with Roche’s funding policy (including the Innovative Medicines Canada (IMC) code). Previous support by Roche for a similar request does not guarantee future support; and depending on the nature of the request, only partial support may be provided.

For information on the evaluation process, please review our process maps.

Submission Tips

Unfortunately, Roche is unable to support all funding request submissions. For funding consideration, please ensure that your submission has met all the relevant requirements and detailed information about the proposed initiative is provided. 

As a reminder, only applications submitted through our online portal will be reviewed. 

We highly recommend that applications for funding support be submitted as early as possible. For international conference support, applications must be submitted at least 90 days in advance of the conference start date. For other funding requests or conferences, please submit your application at least 60 days in advance of the start date to allow our teams adequate time to thoroughly review your request. Please note that a written agreement must be in place before the initiative/conference start date.

Please note that funding requests submitted prior to June 25, 2024, will still be reviewed and processed accordingly. Regardless of Roche’s decision, you will be contacted.
