EvidenceNetwork.ca works with the following third-party brokers of research evidence
The Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) provides decision-makers with the evidence, analysis, advice, and recommendations they require to make informed decisions in health care. Funded by Canada’s federal, provincial, and territorial governments, CADTH is an independent, not-for-profit agency that delivers timely, evidence-based information to health care leaders about the effectiveness and efficiency of health technologies.
The Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI) is dedicated to accelerating healthcare improvement and transformation for Canadians. We collaborate with governments, policy-makers, and health system leaders to convert evidence and innovative practices into actionable policies, programs, tools and leadership development.
We work shoulder to shoulder with policy-makers, managers, front-line providers, patients and families to provide the analysis, processes, tools, learning systems and leadership development needed to accelerate change. We capture what we learn, share it with our partners and work to spread these results across Canada. While our approach is consistent, its application is customized to meet the needs of our partners. Our vision is timely, appropriate, efficient and high-quality services that improve the health of Canadians.
CIHI is an independent, not-for-profit organization that provides essential data and analysis on Canada’s health system and the health of Canadians. CIHI’s mandate is to produce unbiased, comparable and timely information that can lead to better health decisions.

As the Government of Canada’s health research investment agency, CIHR enables the creation of evidence-based knowledge and its transformation into improved treatments, prevention and diagnoses, new products and services, and a stronger, patient-oriented health care system.
The Evidence-Informed Healthcare Renewal Portal | Le Portail RSSDP
The Evidence-Informed Healthcare Renewal (EIHR) Portal is a continuously updated repository of policy-relevant documents that address ‘healthcare renewal’ in Canada. It contains 24 types of documents, including jurisdictional reviews, stakeholder position papers, and intergovernmental communiqués. The documents address priority areas such as primary healthcare, patient safety, health human resources and performance indicators (e.g., timely access) identified by government and other stakeholders.
The EIHR Portal enables health system stakeholders to rapidly:
• identify evidence on a given topic that have been prepared to inform healthcare renewal across Canada;
• search by categories such as priority area, keyword, publication date;
• access links to user-friendly summaries and full-text reports (if applicable and freely available)

Where do you fit in the health care improvement picture? Are you a policy-maker, researcher, journalist or other decision-influencer? If you need evidence, analysis and concrete examples of what is working in Canadian health care and why, we invite you to visit our website and portal.
The Health Council of Canada provides a system-wide perspective on the progress of health care renewal in Canada through frequent, in-depth reports and events. We analyze the evidence in key areas like Aboriginal health, access and wait times, electronic health records, pharmaceuticals management, primary health care, home and community care, health promotion and more. We ask the same questions you do, and bring you the big picture, rich in detail.
We’ve also launched the Health Innovation Portal, a searchable database that allows you to find, learn about and share innovative practices, programs, services, and policies in health care from across the country. We assess each practice using our Innovative Practices Evaluation FrameworkTM, so you’ll know whether it’s emerging, promising or leading based on quality of evidence, impact, applicability and transferability criteria. We’ve featured hundreds of practices already, with new innovations being added each month. The practices cover a range of health care themes, each with a detailed description, contact information and customizable PDF outputs to suit your needs.
