Stroke Recovery Association of BC

At this time, there are about 6,500 strokes in BC every year – and the need for our services is growing.

Strokes have risen by 24% among people in their 50s, and 13% among those in their 60s.

Between 2000 and 2010, ischemic stroke (the most common type) sharply increased among people ages 25 to 44, by 44%.

Our services and resources provide hope and help to stroke survivors, as well as their families, friends and health care professionals.

We have a network of branches, each one headed up by a coordinator who organizes stroke recovery programs and activities. These are places to find support and friendship.

We offer community programs such as the ‘Next Steps’ mall walking programs.

Please contact  the Stroke Recovery Branch nearest you or the SRABC Provincial Office to learn more.
