The Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery has four principal advisory committees. 

The Planning and Priorities Committee (PPC) is made of up CPSR’s scientific leadership from sites across Canada. The PPC helps shapes the research program. 

The External Scientific Advisory Committee brings together international stroke recovery research leaders from the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands and the UK to review scientific proposals and advise CPSR’s scientific leadership on new directions. 

The Stroke Community Advisory Committee is comprised of people who have experienced stroke as well as care partners/family members. The committee provides input into our research program, acts as a sounding board for researchers, vets proposals, and provides input into the development of new knowledge translation tools.

The Knowledge Translation Advisory Committee is made up of researchers, policymakers, partners and patient advocates. Members advise the CPSR on the development of new tools and resources for people living with stroke and clinicians. 


“We are putting into practice what other organizations have just started to think about. It is clearly important to include the perspectives of people living with stroke and their care partners in everything we do. We are so fortunate to have the Stroke Community Advisory Committee helping to shape our research directions.”
