Family Medicine Resident COVID-19 Fund

The OCFP Residents Committee has come together to create a fund for residents wishing to undertake initiatives in support of their peers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All Family Medicine Residency programs in Ontario can now access up to $1500 for a COVID-related effort or initiative that is designed by residents, for residents.

Funding rules:

  • Applicants must be current Family Medicine residents
  • Funds can be used for a stand-alone initiative or as part of a larger project that is focused on supporting family medicine residents during this time
  • Each school can apply multiple times and is eligible for up to $1500 total
  • All applications will be reviewed and a decision communicated within 3-5 business days
  • Application deadline is March 1, 2021, and funds must be spent and expensed by March 31, 2021
  • Approved applications will receive further guidance on reimbursement, which will include submitting copies of receipts, invoices and other supporting documentation and identifying preferred method of payment.

Questions about this funding opportunity can be directed to the OCFP at [email protected]

The OCFP requests that all successful applicants provide feedback once their event has taken place, including any resulting photographs, video, or comments from attendees.
