Over 10 million Canadians live with a brain condition today* and we need to learn more about this experience to better serve individuals and families.
That’s why the NHCC is collaborating with the Public Health Agency of Canada to lead the first-ever National Population Study of Neurological Conditions.
Research teams across Canada are working to build a better understanding of:
The National Population Study of Neurological Conditions is a 4-year project funded by the Government of Canada. Oversight for the study comes from an Implementation Committee comprised of representatives from the Government of Canada’s health portfolio (Health Canada, CIHR, PHAC) and from the NHCC.
The Study was shaped with input from over 3,000 stakeholders across Canada a members of the Canadian neurological research community, of which over 50 individuals gave their time to participate on an Expert Advisory Group. Currently, oversight for the Study is provided by the Implementation Committee and the Scientific Advisory Committee.

* The Society for Neuroscience (2008) reports 50 million Americans with neurological conditions and 44 million Americans with mental health challenges. Applied to the Canadian population equates to 5.6 million Canadians with neurological disorders and 4.9 million Canadians with mental health challenges.
