The Centre for Sport Capacity

Drawing on the collaboration of faculty, students, colleagues from other institutions, and experts from the sport community the Centre for Sport Capacity (CSC) acts in research and granting collaboration, community outreach, and international engagement to examine how individuals within organizations can build and utilize ‘capacity’ for the overall improvement of Canadian sport.

As both a research and development centre the CSC serves as the nucleus through which people, research, information, funding, and policy development flow to create and deliver ongoing skills-based training for large numbers sport volunteers with key administrative functions.

The Centre for Bone & Muscle Health

Changes to the global demographics identify an immediate need to ensure the quality of life allows individuals not only to live longer but also live better.
 
Optimizing musculoskeletal function and health to achieve and maintain a high quality of life and prolong the healthspan (period of time throughout life in which an individual is healthy) is the goal of the Centre for Bone & Muscle Health (CBMH).
 
With this goal in mind, the vision of the CBMH is to further develop and continue to implement a transdisciplinary research-to-practice approach through the integration of the fundamental pillars of bench sciences, social determinants of health, and community engagement.
