At present, the Network has more than 100 researchers at 24 universities across the country. The Canadian Stroke Network, which began in 1999 with $4.7 million in seed funding from the federal government, is a not-for-profit corporation, governed by a Board of Directors and headquartered at the University of Ottawa.The Network puts Canada at the forefront of stroke research through its multi-disciplinary research program, high-quality training for Canadian scientists and clinicians, and national and global partnerships.

  1. Promote research excellence
  2. Train researchers and practitioners
  3. Maximize health and economic benefits
  4. Build national consensus on stroke policy
