Welcome to the CPSR National Trainee Association!


The HSF Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery (CPSR) National Trainee Association is part of the CPSR’s strategic plan to develop a vibrant national trainee community and related programs. Trainees are a major driving force within research, both in their immediate impact on research projects and their future roles as research leaders. Our goal within CPSR is to enhance the trainee experience and further engage their interest in stroke recovery research in order to increase the likelihood of future success.


Our mission is to create a national trainee community by facilitating networking and collaborations and translational interdisciplinary cross-training opportunities in stroke recovery research. We will accomplish this by providing programs and opportunities for trainees to excel and collaborate with a specific focus on stroke recovery research.

Within the CPSR Training pages, you will find:

  • Awards– Highlighting salary support awards for CPSR trainees working with CPSR scientists at CPSR partner sites
  • Events– We will use this page to regularly communicate information about upcoming CPSR events & activities that may be of interest to you, such as the 2015 Stroke Program in Neurorecovery (SPiN) workshop.
  • Mentorship – You will find important information about mentoring opportunities within CPSR NTA
  • Profiles– We will use this page to profile different trainees, helping you get exposure, highlighting recent achievements and facilitating collaborations with mentors and colleagues.
