“As Scientific Director, I strongly believe that we can develop game-changing therapies to dramatically improve the lives of people living with stroke.”

The Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery is a joint initiative of Heart & Stroke and Canada’s top stroke recovery research centres. It brings together leaders in the stroke recovery research community in Canada, who collaborate with scientists and clinicians around the world. 

Our Board of Directors is chaired by one of Canada’s most respected business leaders, Barry Cracower, who founded the Rexall Pharmacy chain and served as its president. The skills-based Board also includes leaders in the health-care, charitable and legal sectors, industry, and research management.

With lean and experienced management and low overhead for networking, meetings, communications and travel, the CPSR is able to invest 84% of its funds directly into research and programs.

“Recovery and rehabilitation researchers in Canada are nothing short of inspiring. It is just a matter of time before we have some breakthroughs that will make a dramatic difference for those living with stroke and their families. For me this is not a job, it is a mission.”

Katie Lafferty, MSIA, CEO, Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery
