Multi-Sectoral Partnerships to Promote Healthy Living and Prevent Chronic Disease

Program Overview

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is pleased to invite eligible organizations to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to advance innovative, multi-sectoral approaches to promote healthy living and prevent chronic disease. Multi-sectoral approaches involving all segments of society are required to address complex social issues such as childhood obesity and the prevention of chronic diseases. PHAC’s Multi-Sectoral Partnerships to Promote Healthy Living and Prevent Chronic Disease approach advances innovative solutions to public health challenges by providing the co-investment needed to test and/or scale-up the most promising primary prevention interventions.


  • The total request for federal funding for each project must be a minimum of $200,000 up to a maximum of $5,000,000.
  • The duration for each project must be a minimum of 2 years (24 months) to a maximum of 5 years (60 months).
  • Funding requests must be a minimum of $100,000 per year of the project duration.
  • All funding requests will be considered based on the project need, project readiness, projected timelines and funding availability.

Eligibility Requirements

Eligible costs include expenses such as personnel, travel and accommodations, materials, equipment, rent and utilities, evaluation/dissemination, or “other” costs related to the approved project. A detailed budget will be required as part of the proposal (stage two) in the application process. Any expenses for travel or accommodation must be supported by a strong rationale.

No expenses for approved projects may be incurred prior to the acceptance of the Contribution Agreement by all parties.

Deadline for LOI Review

There is no deadline for submitting an LOI as LOIs are reviewed periodically throughout the year. The next LOI review period will begin October 1, 2019, at which time we will acknowledge receipt of your submission and respond within 45 days. Exceptions to the review period may apply, and funding will be subject to budgetary and project considerations.
