Message from the Presidents & CEOs Dr. William Reichman and Mr. Josh Cooper


Welcome to the Baycrest 2016-17 Annual Report.

It was a year of “firsts” for Baycrest as its world-leading research, education and care practices were on full display in 2016-17. Baycrest was named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People. Our scientists published major research breakthroughs in brain health care. We also called on government to advance a National Dementia Strategy and created the first Canadian Brain Health Food Guide for adults…. and much, much more.

We invite you to read about these firsts along with the many notable accomplishments by Baycrest staff, clients, volunteers, clinicians, researchers, donors and our community members-at-large in this latest Annual Report. Together, we continue to advance knowledge in the fields of brain health and aging and use what we learn to create translational, leading-edge care programs, services and innovations that improve life for older adults.

Thank you to our donors and community for the incredible support that has made not only our longevity, but our aspirations for success, a reality.

For nearly a century, Baycrest has added life to years. As we approach our centennial in 2018, we invite you to join us in our continuing mission to promote healthy aging for the next 100 years and beyond.
