Transition To Scale

Grand Challenges Canada’s Transition To Scale program supports innovators from Canada and from low- and middle-income countries who are positioned to take their bold ideas to big impact in the area of global health. Through the Transition To Scale program, Grand Challenges Canada brokers smart partnerships that mobilize private capital and domestic public resources to generate scalable and sustainable solutions that deliver measurable social impact.

In this Request for Proposals, Grand Challenges Canada seeks to support the transition to scale and sustainability of Bold Ideas with Big Impact® from our Stars in Global Health, Saving Lives at Birth, Saving Brains, and Global Mental Health programs, as well as invited innovations from approved partners, such as the Every Woman Every Child Innovation Marketplace.

Grand Challenges Canada makes investments of up to $1.0 million CAD to catalyze the scale and sustainability of the most promising global health innovations.

Please note that this Request for Proposals may be replaced again in the future; we therefore recommend that you return to this page to check for revised versions prior to the submission of your application.

Grand Challenges Canada will aim to provide a funding decision within six months of submission of a Transition-to-Scale application. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
