Helping Canadian Health Professionals Help Others

Our programs

The Canadian Medical Foundation was established in 1987 to help physicians realize their philanthropic goals. Since our establishment, we have partnered with physicians and communities in Canada and internationally to improve global health, as well as to provide assistance to physicians-in-training in Canada.

Today our focus is to increase the number of healthcare professionals from under-resourced and underserved communities through partnerships within the communities themselves.


Leadership Giving & Legacy

Planned giving helps you create a legacy of support for the causes you care about most, and can maximizes your tax and estate planning benefits. When speaking to your financial advisor, make sure that they are aware of your philanthropic goals, and consider a gift to the CMF today.


Physicians at any stage of their careers can benefit from volunteering. In accordance with our mission to encourage volunteerism and promote philanthropy among health professionals.
