TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – June 5, 2009) – The Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State (Science and Technology), today announced more than $350,000 in infrastructure funding for the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto.

The funding is being provided through the Knowledge Infrastructure Program, a two-year, $2-billion program designed to repair and expand research and educational facilities at Canadian colleges and universities. The program is helping to provide economic stimulus and promote employment by creating jobs for engineers, architects, tradespeople and technicians.

“This Government of Canada investment will provide a significant economic stimulus to the region,” said Minister of State Goodyear. “Our government is investing in innovation to create jobs, to help our economy recover quickly and to improve the quality of life of Canadians.”

Together with funding from the College itself, the investment for infrastructure projects at the College totals more than $1.2 million.

Canada’s Economic Action Plan sets out to stimulate the Canadian economy over the next two years and to improve our long-term competitiveness through $12 billion in new infrastructure investment, which includes the $2-billion Knowledge Infrastructure Program. This new support is the next substantive investment in the Government of Canada’s multi-year Science and Technology Strategy, Mobilizing Science and Technology to Canada’s Advantage.

    Looks like it’s just as bad in CA as it is here with the NIH… huge budget, and yet a fraction of 1% goes to Chiropractic.

    As Dr. Anthony Rosner, Director of FCER stated before it’s demise:

    “Even more remarkable is the efficiency of chiropractic research. When compared to the NIH budget of nearly $20 billion, the $10 million investment in federal funds is substantially less than a tenth of 1 percent, which makes it less than a rounding error. Put another way, as a couple of wags have offered in the past, the federal government must believe in alternative medicine, because it has given chiropractic researchers homeopathic doses of money with which to work.”
