Our Mission

Fortius Sport & Health is an integrated athlete development centre strengthened through philanthropy and focused on optimizing human performance for life.

Our Foundation

​​​We are a registered charity inspired to collaborate with like-minded, innovative organizations and individuals that recognize the power of sport to transform lives.

​​​

What drives us​​?

The Fortius Foundation bought the land and built the facility that is at the heart of Fortius Sport & Health in Burnaby, B.C. We enhanced it with leading-edge equipment and technologies.

Our role is simple: to fund and support world-class sport and exercise medicine and science facilities, programs and other initiatives centered on collaborative research, education and innovation.

We are supported by donations – both to our capital campaign and fundraising to support local programs.​ With our support – and yours – aspiring young athletes can receive the same model of care as professional athletes and Olympians, and more kids can have positive experiences in sport.


OUR CURRENT NEEDS

​​KIDSMOVE powered by REACH

KidsMove is a free program that  integrates physical, lifestyle and mental skills to support the development of children aged 9-12. Steve Nash and a group of top healthcare practitioners have collaborated with Fortius to create this program. Your donation can help ensure kids can continue to participate in these sessions for no charge.


BACK IN THE GAME

A cutting edge treatment program for youth with chronic back pain or acute back injury, ​Back in the Game​ integrates physiotherapy, Pilates, yoga and traditional strength and conditioning in a group environment for youth aged 11-19.​ With your support, the Foundation can continue to help subsidize the cost of this program to help aspiring athletes return to play. 


ATHLETE BURSARY

What if every young athlete could benefit from the unique integrated approach Fortius offers? Through your donations, our bursary program ensures that economically disadvantaged athletes have access to the rehabilitation and training programs they need to be their best. 


Electromyograph​ - COMPLETED!

An Electromyograph (EMG) will provide our physicians with a powerful tool to identify musculoskeletal injuries, nerve damage and specific issues related to neck and back pain. More knowledge means better treatment, throughout a patient’s Fortius journey. 
Please note the Foundation purchased our first EMG machine in January, 2017.


Ultrasound​ - COMPLETED!

A new generation ultrasound system is a portable, versatile tool that will be used by our physicians and for our back treatment programs including Back in the Game. It gives instant, visual feedback to patients looking to activate specific muscles.​​
Please note the Foundation purchased our new Ultrasound machine  in January, 2017.​
