ICES Central

ICES opened its doors on the campus of Toronto's Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in 1992. Over the past 22 years ICES has grown in size - from less than 10 to over 350 staff and scientists.

Beginning in 2007, ICES began a program of geographic dispersion by opening secure data facilities at strategic locations across Ontario. The original ICES, renamed ICES Central, remains on the campus of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

collaborations & partnerships

Recognizing the importance of partnerships in achieving positive change, ICES has assembled a diverse network of stakeholders, associate scientists and representatives of provincial, national and international health care organizations to collaborate on research initiatives. This active involvement in external relations and stakeholder participation has created a forum for research excellence, policy debate and effective, sustainable change, while also expanding the capacity for research in Canada.

Over the years, ICES has strengthened its long-term relationships, while forging new alliances to support emerging areas of research.
