CRISM (Canadian Research Initiative in Substance Misuse) provides a Canada-wide research network in the field of substance misuse, where members work together to generate the knowledge base necessary to improve current addiction treatment paradigms.
CRISM was designed to facilitate communication and collaboration among addiction service providers, researchers, and policy-makers. The four regional CRISM Nodes, in BC, the Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic region, began their operations in 2015.

The Atlantic Node includes New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.The Node plans to contribute to CRISM with projects that accelerate the transfer of scientific knowledge towards the development of new treatments, including pharmaceutical approaches and psychological interventions for people who use substances.
The Atlantic Node includes researchers from several universities and institutions, clinicians, policy-makers, administrators, practitioners, and representatives of substance users’ groups as well as individuals in different stages of support programs for people living with substance misuse problems.
The expertise and experience of node members and team make it a dynamic and productive space in which large scale and innovative research projects are carried out. Its activities contribute to the development, implementation and evaluation of new evidence-based preventive methods.
improve the practices (prevention or treatment) for groups and people affected by problematic use of opioids and other substances
contribute to the field’s knowledge with new evidence
Foster collaborations within the node, nationally, and internationally
Although this funding opportunity/competition attracts CRISM QA Node members with experience in the competitive research grant application environment, we strongly encourage node members with less experience to seek collaboration opportunities with CRISM Quebec Atlantic Researchers to submit eligible protocols and projects to the RDP for review.
