Capacity Building Initiatives

The Chronic Pain Centre of Excellence for Canadian Veterans (CPCoE) has created Capacity Building Initiatives (CBIs) to build capacity in the field of Veterans’ chronic pain research. The CBIs support Canadian graduate students completing relevant research at the Master’s or Doctoral level. By investing in these students, CPCoE is helping to grow the next generation of researchers who will contribute to improving the well-being of Canadian Armed Forces Veterans, and their families, suffering from chronic pain.

One of CPCoE’s CBIs is dedicated to a founding member of the Advisory Council for Veterans, François Dupéré, who passed away on 20 January 2021.  François was an inspiration as a Veteran and as a human being.  To preserve his legacy as an advocate for resiliency within the Veterans’ community, CPCoE established a specific CBI in his honour to fund the research of a new Francophone Master’s student on a yearly basis.
