New WorkSafeBC research grant competition

Do you have an idea that could help improve workplace health and safety? Some of the best solutions start with simple ideas.

WorkSafeBC is pleased to launch our Applied Innovation research grants competition. Formerly known as Innovation at Work, our new Applied Innovation grants can help you develop your idea into a solution that makes a difference in the workplace.

Letter of Intent due: June 10, 2022, at 4 p.m. PDT


  • Grants support the same “insights and evidence” and “tools and technology” projects funded through Innovation at Work, but with an expanded scope to include pilot studies and knowledge transfer and exchange activities. Your project may seek to understand why and how things occur, evaluate interventions that seek to achieve positive change, or apply evidence directly to the workplace.
  • Grants are up to $50,000 for a duration of 12 months.
  • Any Canadian resident may apply, including workers, employers, and academic researchers with an industry collaboration or a non-academic partner.
  • Research topics should align with our research priorities.
