Parkinson's disease affects about 7 million people globally. By 2031 the Parkinson's population in Canada over the age of 40 is anticipated to increase by 65% and those over the age of 65 with Parkinson's disease will more than double. With more than 25 people a day diagnosed in Canada, chances are you know someone who has been affected by Parkinson's disease.

Increasing awareness of Parkinson's disease creates a rare opening for businesses who are motivated to offer support for a critically important cause while conveying a leadership investment in health for Canadians that is both strategic and proactive.
