Canadian General Surgeons have pioneered the development and application of minimally invasive surgical techniques, cancer care, transplantation, the management of trauma and sepsis and in innovative & cost-effective, evidence-informed health care delivery.

The Canadian General Surgery Foundation (CGSF) – formally the Canadian Surgery Research Fund – was founded in the early 1980’s to promote research performed by general surgeons and general surgery residents in both clinical and basic science.

Donations to the CGSF are used to support general surgery research through the annual Operating Grant Competition, as well as through a Resident Research Retreat held at the Canadian Surgery Forum each year.

The Board of the CGSF acknowledges the importance of your donations that assist in funding these important activities.

If you would prefer to speak to someone directly to make your donation, please contact Sarah Vout at 613-868-8428.
