A national Leadership Council oversees the work of the CPSR.
The CPSR Leadership Council is co-chaired by stroke neurologist Dr. Andrew Demchuk, Director of the Calgary Stroke Program, and physiatrist Dr. Sean Dukelow of Hotchkiss Brain Institute at the University of Calgary. The Co-Chairs of the CPSR Leadership Council are responsible for providing the strategic leadership required to develop and deliver the CPSR’s vision, mission and strategic priorities and they serve in an advisory capacity to the CEO. The Co-Chairs and CEO work closely on all matters of strategic importance particularly in relation to the CPSR’s institutional partners, researchers, the stroke community and the general public.
Members of the Leadership Council include people with lived experience, and scientists and clinicians with expertise in stroke recovery research, capacity-building, care innovation, and more. The Leadership Council includes representation from research partners, both in Canada and internationally.
