The 2019 Congress – the top stroke meeting for learning, networking and connecting with colleagues from across Canada-- takes place in Ottawa from Oct. 3 to 5, 2019. 

The Call for Abstracts opens on March 4, 2019.

This year’s meeting focuses on the future of stroke: Are we ready?

Sessions and workshops will probe:

  • innovations in prevention; 
  • advances in treatment, rehabilitation and recovery; 
  • new frontiers in basic research; 
  • technologies to transform care; 
  • health systems change;
  • and more.

Again this year, the Canadian Stroke Congress features the prestigious Hnatyshyn Lecture, awarded annually to an individual who has made asignificant and positive impacton the stroke landscape. Nominations remain open until Feb. 24, 2019. Learn more HERE.

And if that isn’t enough . . .

Meeting organizers have reserved one of the most picturesque venues in the nation’s capital for the Congress -- the beautiful Shaw Centre, overlooking the historic Rideau Canal and Parliament Hill and just steps away from the lively Byward Market. You might even get a glimpse of one of our federal politicians in election mode!

Stay tuned for details about abstract submissions, the program and registration in upcoming emails. Information will be posted shortly on our website www.strokecongress.ca.



We can’t wait to see you in Ottawa in October!
