The Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) is a solution accelerator focused on driving innovation in the aging and brain health sector. Established in 2015 through funding of $124 million (CAD), it is the result of the largest investment in aging and brain health in Canadian history, and one of the largest investments of its kind in the world.

CABHI is a unique collaboration of health care, science, industry, not-for-profit and government partners whose aim is to help improve quality of life for the world’s aging population, allowing older adults of all backgrounds and abilities to age safely in the setting of their choice while maintaining their cognitive, emotional, and physical well-being.  Through its funding programs, CABHI helps global innovators gain access to key user groups in order to test, develop, validate and accelerate the adoption of their solutions.

CABHI is powered by Baycrest, a global leader in aging and brain health and home to the Rotman Research Institute, one of the world’s top research institutes in cognitive neuroscience. With more than 100 years of experience in improving the well-being of older adults and serving the needs of the people who care for them, CABHI builds on Baycrest’s much sought-after expertise and exemplary care experience.

CABHI has received funding from the Government of Canada through the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Colleges and Universities, and the Baycrest Foundation.
