Improving health through prevention

The PERFORM Centre is an axis — it is where research, education and community come together in the scientific exploration of physical activity, nutrition and lifestyle.


Promoting healthy living

PERFORM brings researchers, students and the community together in a state-of-the-art clinical research facility. Its purpose is to create a highly integrated and comprehensive environment that promotes healthy living. Research at PERFORM will focus on how to best manage injury, chronic disease, and quality of life by making changes in lifestyle and behaviour.

The time is now

It is more important than ever for research to reach out into the community. In order to properly manage a rapidly aging population, increasing rates of obesity and growing levels of inactivity, PERFORM's vision is to foster more research, more education, and more programs for the community. The PERFORM Centre seeks to leverage the links between exercise, nutrition, physical activity and lifestyle in an effort to improve health across the population.

The place is Concordia

The creation of the PERFORM Centre was facilitated by Concordia's research excellence in the areas of exercise science, psychology and behavioural medicine. The project was also supported by a $35 million investment from the Government of Canada and through the Knowledge Infrastructure Program of Quebec's Ministère du Développement économique, de l'Innovation et de l'Exportation (MDEIE).
