The Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery was the first research organization in the world dedicated exclusively to stroke recovery. 

This unique partnership brings together organizations from across Canada to focus on research with the biggest potential impact. 

While each partner on its own is doing extraordinary work, together the partners – all of whom invest directly in CPSR – are accelerating advances in stroke recovery.

Partners include the University of Ottawa, The Ottawa Hospital, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Baycrest Health Sciences, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, Memorial University of Newfoundland, the University of British Columbia and the University of Calgary/Hotchkiss Brain Institute.

“Heart & Stroke works closely with the CPSR as valuable partners and leaders in stroke recovery. CPSR-funded research projects such as tele-rehabilitation, and knowledge exchange resources including Stroke Engine and the Evidence-Based Review of Stroke Rehabilitation contribute significantly to Heart & Stroke’s evidence-based stroke best practice recommendations, which set the bar for stroke-care delivery across Canada.

CPSR helps ensure rehabilitation and recovery programming for the Canadian Stroke Congress is innovative and fosters a growing network of multidisciplinary research. Our unique and collaborative partnership addresses an urgent need to advance research into new and better ways to help people recover from stroke.”
