About us

The Toronto Stroke Networks (TSNs) are made up of three stroke networks: the North & East GTA Stroke Network (NEGTASN), the South East Toronto Stroke Network (SETSN) and the Toronto West Stroke Network (TWSN). As part of the eleven stroke networks within Ontario, the TSNs work within a broader coordinated provincial stroke system (Ontario Stroke System).

Land acknowledgement

The Toronto Stroke Networks’ acknowledges that we are on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Anishinaabe, the Ojibway/Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and this land is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We do this to reaffirm our commitment and responsibility in improving relationships between nations and to improving our own understanding of local indigenous peoples and their cultures.
