Canadian Neurosurgical Society (CNSS)

Mission Statement

To enhance the care of patients with diseases of the nervous system through education, advocacy, and improved methods of diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.

The Canadian Neurological Society was established in 1948 and represented both neurologists and neurosurgeons.  In 1965, the original CNS was dissolved and two new societies were created to represent these two distinct groups.  The Canadian Neurosurgical Society was established to represent the neurosurgeons.

Today the Canadian Neurosurgical Society has approximately 300 members representing neurosurgeons and neurosurgery residents in Canada.  The CNSS Board of Directors manages the business, initiatives and finances of the CNSS. The board also appoints CNSS member representatives to sit on various CNSF committees, including the Professional Development Committee and the Scientific Program Committee. The CNSS President and Vice-President also serve on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Neurological Sciences Federation (CNSF).
