Schizophrenia research generally remains underfunded in Canada, yet, this research is essential to make it possible for future generations to be free of this debilitating illness. And in addition to raising funds for programs and services offered by BC Schizophrenia Society, the BCSS Foundation (BCSSF) also raises funds for schizophrenia research in BC.

BCSSF is proud to partner with Michael Smith Health Research BC (previously Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research) to provide awards through their Research Trainee Competition. The goal of this partnership is to create new generations of talented researchers in schizophrenia by providing support to post-doctoral or health professional researchers.  By partnering with Michael Smith Health Research BC, BCSSF co-funds research projects, thereby doubling the amount of money for investigations that lead to better care, better treatments, and discoveries that may one day lead to a cure.
