CaMos fights for research dollar$! Issue No. 3 | 1998-12-03

Since it began in 1995, CaMos has had the generous support of both private and public sponsors. Its total budget is $9.5 million. While industrial sponsors (Eli Lilly Canada, Merck-Frosst Canada, Procter & Gamble, the Dairy Farmers of Canada) provided considerable financial support, the project could not proceed without funding from the federal government. In 1998, as part of the government's austerity program the responsibility for funding all medical/biological research was transferred to the Medical Research Council (MRC). The National Health Research and Development Program which funded CaMos from its incep-tion, could not do so beyond March 31, 1998. Without government funds CaMos would have to be terminated.

CaMos, together with the Osteoporosis Society of Canada (OSC) and some of its industrial sponsors, the Federated Women's Institutes of Ontario and Seniors' organizations campained to raise support in Ottawa. Meetings with members of Parliament alerted the government to the consequences of stopping CaMos prematurely.
