COVID‑19 resources for researchers and clinicians in Canada

- Ottawa, Ontario

In addition to ongoing research projects, the NRC is also a contributor to COVID‑19 Resources Canada, a web portal designed to help those working on COVID-19-related research and development initiatives in Canada make connections and locate human resources, expertise, reagents, and equipment.

Since the portal's launch in March  020, the number of volunteers more than doubled alongside its projects, opportunities, and initiatives. To date, the portal has recruited more than 3,400 volunteers. It features more than 160 COVID-19-related projects and funding opportunities, and more than 150 relevant initiatives.
