Funding for formation of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) was confirmed in the federal budget of February 1999. The CIHR will be the major source of funds for health research in Canada and will be structured such that a limited number of "research institutes" will exist together. It is likely that these institutes will affect policy and funding in their respective areas. The Section of Researchers of the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) proposes the formation of an Institute of Primary Care Research within the Canadian Institutes for Health Research. It would provide a source of increased unding for primary care-based research.
