We are the leading partnership in the world focused on stroke recovery. We bring together the top researchers to collaborate, advance discovery, test new approaches, conduct clinical trials, and deliver new knowledge to the people who can apply it. 

Headquartered at the University of Ottawa, the HSF Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery (CPSR) is a joint initiative of Heart & Stroke and Canada’s leading stroke recovery research centres. 

Thanks to the efforts of the CPSR, the potential for accelerating advances is greater than ever.


“The HSF Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery represents a group of researchers and clinicians from across the country who have come together to collectively help solve the problems faced by people living with stroke.”
