The ICORD Community Resource Centre is a large open resource space located in the atrium of the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre. Funds raised from our annual Spinal Chord gala have helped establish and maintain the Centre, which aims to make SCI research accessible and understandable for the community at large, in addition to providing important information and resources to people visiting the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre.
Since opening in 2011, the Resource Centre has launched a blog and created a social media presence for ICORD on Facebook and Twitter. These resources enhance community engagement and improve knowledge translation of important research findings to members of the SCI community. Blog posts are created by undergraduate volunteers, which provides them with valuable knowledge translation skills.
Visit the Resource Centre weekdays between 10am and 4pm. Please call first if you are making a special trip. The centre is staffed mostly by student volunteers, and occasionally the hours vary: 604-675-8800 (press 1).
