Cochrane Canada staff are grateful for the generous support they have received from many people and institutions across the country.

The Cochrane Collaboration's central functions are funded by royalties from its publishers, John Wiley and Sons Limited, which come from sales of subscriptions to The Cochrane Library. The individual entities of The Cochrane Collaboration are funded by a large variety of governmental, institutional and private funding sources, and are bound by organization-wide policy limiting uses of funds from corporate sponsors.

Cochrane Canada would like to thank the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) for providing the Blackboard CollaborateTM platform for online training.
