The Canadian Stroke Consortium (CSC) is the national professional association for physicians interested in stroke.

The CSC is a world leader in the delivery of acute stroke trials and stroke prevention trials.

Its associate members are colleagues who represent other disciplines involved in stroke prevention and treatment. Together, the CSC is committed to reducing the burden of stroke through the translation of clinical research into clinical practice.

Created, owned and operated by its members, the CSC was established in 1993 and incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1996. Many of its members are leaders in Canadian and international stroke research, education, and clinical practice. Through collaboration with other medical professional organizations and industry partners, the CSC leads the design and implementation of clinical research activities and educational initiatives that contribute to reducing the burden of stroke on Canadians.
