Support Us

MIRA is working to help people age well with dignity. Let’s do that together.

Support the Institute

In addition to traditional funding streams, our work is supported through generous individual and institutional donations that play a vital role in sustaining our activities and expanding our mandate to help Canadians live well longer.  We are grateful for the continued support of our sponsors.

Donations to the Institute help us to:

  • Provide scholarships to the best and brightest graduate student minds in aging research;
  • Provide travel awards to help our trainees to attend national and international conferences;
  • Engage with world experts as speakers at our scientific and public events.
