About

our mission

The provincial Cerebral Palsy Associations and Kids Brain Health Network researchers are partnering to enhance the health and well-being of children, youth and adults with cerebral palsy and their families. This CP Canada Network aims to inform and empower families by providing accessible, credible information on new research discoveries, educational opportunities, provincial services and programs and personal success stories. Information that is relevant specifically to individuals with cerebral palsy will be continuously updated, so as to optimize awareness and understanding of the condition and facilitate access to the best services and supports.
