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.

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!
