Shape the future of brain research in Canada!

Share your lived experience to inform the Canadian Brain Research Strategy

The Canadian Brain Research Strategy (CBRS) is looking for 30-40 people with lived experience with brain conditions to include their feedback into the development of the strategy. CBRS and its partners recommend that Canada establish a national brain research initiative to benefit the neurological and mental health of Canadians. We want to hear the issues that matter most to you about brain research!

Who can participate:

Patients, people with lived experience with brain conditions, family and caregivers, patient representatives and advocates. No research training or experience is required.

We are looking for diverse voices across age, geography, race, gender and experience. All people living in Canada are welcome to apply.

What’s the commitment:

Participants will attend

  1. One workshop on Tuesday May 17, 2022 from 7:00 – 8:30PM ET (1.5 hrs)
  2. One focus group during the week of June 13th or June 20th (1.5 hrs)
