The Canadian Stroke Congress is a uniquely Canadian forum in which participants reflecting “bench-to-bedside-to-community” perspectives of stroke can exchange ideas, collaborate, and learn about innovation in stroke prevention, treatment, and recovery.

The Canadian Stroke Congress normally attracts more than 800 delegates from across Canada and around the world. Delegates include leading neurologists, neurointerventionalists, internists, general practitioners, nurses, rehabilitation specialists, basic scientists, knowledge-translation experts, and policy makers in the field of stroke.

This year we’re excited to be returning to the city that hosted the largest ever Canadian Stroke Congress: Calgary, AB.

We look forward to welcoming Canada’s best and brightest minds in stroke research, prevention, care, and recovery at the eighth Canadian Stroke Congress!

Abstract submission will be open March 6 – April 28, 2017.

The 2017 Preliminary Congress Program will be available online March 1, 2017. If you would like to be notified when abstract submission opens please email strokecongress@heartandstroke.ca
