What is the SPOR Evidence Alliance?


Welcome to Our Alliance!

The SPOR Evidence Alliance is a partnership between researchers, patients, healthcare providers, policymakers, and other decision-makers who are committed to building a Canadian health system that is increasingly informed and improved using best available evidence and innovations uncovered by the health research community.

The Alliance is jointly funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research  and 41 public agencies and organizations across Canada to create a collaborative research environment that is centred around patients and health system decision-makers as part of the Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research initiative.
