Drawing on the collaboration of faculty, students, colleagues from other institutions, and experts from the sport community the Centre for Sport Capacity (CSC) acts in research and granting collaboration, community outreach, and international engagement to examine how individuals within organizations can build and utilize ‘capacity’ for the overall improvement of Canadian sport.
As both a research and development centre the CSC serves as the nucleus through which people, research, information, funding, and policy development flow to create and deliver ongoing skills-based training for large numbers sport volunteers with key administrative functions.

The Centre for Bone & Muscle Health provides a dynamic research environment for students and faculty to interact and develop a greater understanding of how muscle and bone contribute to overall health. A wide range of approaches – use of molecular techniques, experimental in vivo models and human intervention studies - are used to study bone and muscle health. The Centre brings together researchers from the Departments of Kinesiology and Community Health Sciences along with collaborators from other institutions. Graduate training plays a vital role in the Centre through the Graduate Program in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences.
