Vaccine Community Innovation Challenge (VCIC) – Public Health Agency of Canada + Webinar on Accountability Mechanisms for Immigration Consultants

March 20, 2021 | Communications Chair

  • Vaccine Community Innovation Challenge (VCIC) – Public Health Agency of Canada
    • A number of federal departments have recently launched funding opportunities for vaccine confidence-focused initiatives in Canada. These opportunities will support a broad range of research, communications and interventions initiatives, and may be of interest to you and your organization. These funding opportunities complement funding available through the Immunization Partnership Fund, which recently closed its call for letters of intent.
    • The VCIC encourages individuals and/or groups across Canada to help promote vaccine confidence in their communities. Twenty finalists will each receive $25,000 to create and implement a creative and innovative communications campaign over twelve weeks in Summer 2021. At the end of the campaign, one winner will receive a grand prize of $100,000.
    • Proposal deadline: April 9, 2021
