Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging: Call for Proposals

​Deadline: January 29, 2018
MIRA funding can support access fees ($3,000) for up to 10 applications for CLSA data access 

Did you know that 47% of CLSA participants use social media daily to connect with family? This is only one example of the type of information held within the rich CLSA database. The CLSA is tracking 50,000 Canadians aged 45 to 85, making thousands of longitudinal variables available for analysis. Data access applications are accepted three times per year. Researchers should notify Laura Harrington ( of their intent to apply for CLSA data access to be considered for MIRA funding. MIRA funds will be allocated only to projects that do not have any other funding for this purpose.
