Strategic Plan 2019-2023
A strategic planning session was held in Ottawa on October 21, 2018, to define the priorities of the foundation, with a specific focus on our vision and strategic initiatives.
The CRF has identified two areas of focus to drive results during the next five years. Each of these is focused on creating the capacity to serve the practice of radiology and be patient-centred:
- Establish a leadership position in Canadian radiological philanthropy
- Demonstrate best practices in raising funds and governing the foundation
The CRF's five pillars are:
- Research and innovation grants
- Patient-centred care
- Leadership development
- Educational outreach
- Professional and trainee awards
