About us


Founded in 1975, ICRF is a non profit organization consisting of physicians, scientists and volunteers who are dedicated to supporting innovative cancer research in Israel and locally in Montreal.


Since its inception, ICRF has raised more than $40 million and has funded over 1800 cancer research projects. A scientific advisory board consisting of internationally renowned cancer specialists stringently review grant applications – only those applicants deemed most worthy are selected.


ICRF has offices in Montreal, Toronto, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Israel. The Montreal chapter represents an integral part of the ICRF family and to date the per capita funding raised by this group has been greater than any other chapter. During the past few years we have made significant strides in the search for a cure and continue to be determined to achieve more.
