ICES-Institute for clinical evaluative sciences

Collaborations & Partnerships

Collaboration is the key to driving successful research initiatives and ultimately achieving positive change. Two relationships have been particularly important: The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has been a major funder of ICES and has managed that relationship over 21 years without seeking to influence the direction or findings of ICES research; and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre has been a strong supporter of ICES and has provided us with a home for over 20 years.

To expand the scope and impact of health services research in Canada, ICES has forged partnerships across a diverse network of adjunct scientists, stakeholder organizations and representatives of provincial and national health care organizations. In addition, many ICES scientists serve on research committees, programs and task forces at the local, provincial, national and international levels.
