In 2012, the UOIT-CMCC Centre for Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation was established through a research partnership between the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) and the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC). The Centre, directed by Pierre Côté, DC, PhD, works with related health research and innovative supportive agencies, educational partners, health-care delivery institutions, industry and government to examine questions focused on the prevention and management of chronic musculoskeletal and psychological conditions and disabilities.

On November 23, 2011, the Ontario Ministry of Finance and the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) had issued a Request for Proposals (No.: OSS_00267175) for consulting services for the development of a new treatment protocol for the development of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the management of traffic injuries. Côté and colleagues were awarded the grant and the final report, Enabling recovery from common traffic injuries: A focus on the injured person, was submitted to FSCO on January 31, 2015. From 2012 to 2016, the Centre’s research associates conducted 43 systematic reviews and developed 22 care pathways for the management of common traffic injuries.
