This year two applicants tied for highest rating. Recognizing the excellence of both, the review committee decided to split the available funds to award each project.

The “CMHA Ottawa Condominium Program Study and Toolkit: Building Success in Housing First Treatment” team and the “Engaging youth with mental health and/or addiction concerns in health care navigation and research” by the Family Navigation Project at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre team has been awarded the highly-coveted Paula Goering Collaborative Research and Knowledge Translation Award!

The awards committee was particularly impressed with how the Housing First project’s diverse advisory board shaped all phases from research question to end. For the navigation project, the awards committee was impressed with the engagement of youth across different roles/levels of project; the opportunities created for youth to learn facilitation skills; commitment to share power across the team; and potential for scaling to other pressing health issues.

The bi-annual Paula Goering award is sponsored by University of Toronto’s Department of Psychiatry, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Foundation, and CAMH’s Provincial Systems Support Program.

We thank all the applicants for their submissions and encourage further applications for the 2024 round.

We will hold a virtual event in the next few months to celebrate the winning teams as well as Dr. Goering’s vital contributions to making integrated knowledge exchange an important component of research.

Please stay tuned for the details!

Congratulations to both the project teams! For more information about the two projects, visit:
