Visiting the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre


The Blusson Spinal Cord Centre is close to several bus routes: the #17, 9, and 99 all stop nearby. The Broadway-City Hall Canada Line station is a few blocks east. For information, please see the Translink website. 

Here’s an all-downhill route from Broadway-City Hall to the BSCC: Exit the station and cross Broadway (northbound) and Cambie (westbound), and go to the bus stop in front of London Drugs. Take the #17 Oak westbound to 10th Avenue. Cross Oak (eastbound) and head east on 10th Avenue for two blocks.


ICORD has two lots for research study participant parking. These spots are for individuals who are volunteering their time for active research with ICORD at BSCC.

If you are driving to the BSCC as a research participant, be sure to request a parking pass from your study coordinator before driving to the BSCC. ICORD passes are date-stamped and must be displayed in addition to a valid SPARC pass. Vehicles without both SPARC and ICORD parking passes are liable to be ticketed. Ticketing is under VCH authority and ICORD has no control over the process.

If you are driving to the BSCC to visit the Brenda & David McLean Integrated Spine Clinic, please use one of the three free accessible parking spots shown in red on the map below, or park in one of the nearby parkades (download map).

All ICORD parking spots revert to VCH pay parking from 6pm-7am & on weekends.
