Our Partners

AQPA has many partnerships that help us advance the cause of aphasia. These include collaborations with universities, foundations, collectives and institutes which allow us to be actively involved in aphasia research.

Some examples of partnership:

We are pleased to count the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) among our partners since 2022-2023. This partnership was born from a desire to offer a new training activity to caregivers and will possibly take the form of research-action-training with emancipatory potential for caregivers. 

As part of this partnership with the Institute for Research in Music and Health (IRMS) of the University of Ottawa, the AQPA contributes to research on aphasia and music, and has already expressed its interest in being associated with new initiatives, notably involving the choir. The benefits of these projects could benefit AQPA members as well as people with aphasia in general.

The National Institute of Music Therapy is collaborating with the AQPA as part of a pilot project intended for relatives of people with aphasia. This will allow them to experience music therapy to support their mental and emotional health.


AQPA has been a member of AlterGo for decades. AlterGo has created a new entity: Universal Accessibility Collective, of which we are also members, and which campaigns for the principles of universal accessibility to develop.

AQPA is in constant collaboration with the School of Human Communication Sciences at McGill University. This partnership has provided hundreds of students with a privileged opportunity to discover aphasia and develop community intervention models inspired by research and literature. Students have the opportunity to complete an internship in a community environment directly in AQPA premises.

The AQPA is in collaboration with the School of speech therapy and audiology of the University of Montreal, which has also welcomed our clients for many years as part of a workshop. AQPA is regularly associated with research carried out by professors and students at the University, and also benefits from the expertise of the teaching staff to support its grant applications.

For more than 25 years, the Educational and Pedagogical Resource Center of the Montreal School Services Center has ensured the regular presence of a teacher during communication workshops for people with aphasia.

Support for caregivers offers support to AQPA, particularly through financial assistance, to carry out the project Training and support for caregivers in communicating with a person with aphasia.
