About Us

Untitled Document

Parkinson Canada is the national voice of Canadians living with Parkinson’s disease. From diagnosis to discovery, we guide the way for Canadians to live well with Parkinson’s disease through education, advocacy and support services. Whether you are an individual living with Parkinson’s, a health care professional who treats them or a family caregiver, we offer programs and services in communities coast to coast to coast, over the telephone and online. Our National Research Program funds innovative research to search for better treatments and a cure. Working with provincial and federal governments, our advocacy efforts seek to improve the quality of life for those living with Parkinson’s and their families.

Parkinson Canada participates in numerous coalitions and partnerships to effectively fulfil its mission.

  • Parkinson Canada is a founding member of Neurological Health Charities Canada (NHCC), whose primary aim is to seek a national brain strategy. In partnership with the Public Health Agency of Canada, a national epidemiological study of neurological disease was published in 2014.
  • Parkinson Canada cooperates with a vast range of international, provincial or locally based organizations, whenever it advances the cause of the Parkinson’s community.
  • Parkinson Canada is a member of the Best Medicines Coalition, Carers Canada, Canadian Coalition for Genetic Fairness, Health Charities Coalition of Canada, Neurological Health Charities Canada and the World Parkinson Coalition.

A national registered charity, Parkinson Canada fulfils its mission through the generosity of donors and is an accredited organization under the Imagine Canada Standards Program.
