Message from the Chairs Laurence Goldstein and David Kassie


Welcome to the Baycrest 2016-17 Annual Report. Please join us in looking at our year in retrospect; taking stock of our recent successes and looking towards an inspiring future.

It was a year of accomplishments for Baycrest. Once again, our exemplary donor and scientific communities worked together to advance care practices and knowledge of the aging brain, and helped facilitate critical educational outreach to Canadians about brain health.

As well, we continued to expand the influence and impact of the Canadian Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CC-ABHI), after signing a multi-year partnership agreement with Israel’s Ministry of Economy and reaching out with innovative programs to engage the Ontario, Canadian and world medical science sectors, and helping them advance brain health knowledge mobilization.

These accomplishments and others are illustrating how Baycrest is having real success today and how our work is resonating with the local, national and international communities.

Thanks to your support, Baycrest continues to be a beacon of brain health care provision and a top-quality, world-leading Centre of Excellence in the field of aging.

Chair, Baycrest Foundation Board
