About Parkinson Canada

Parkinson Canada is the national voice of Canadians living with Parkinson’s disease. We provide education, support, and advocacy on behalf of Canadians living with Parkinson’s. Funding innovative research through the National Research Program helps expand knowledge on diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s and will ultimately lead to a cure.

Parkinson Canada provides educational workshops, conferences, seminars, a toll-free National Information and Referral line, printed resources, and supportive services in both Canada’s official languages. Parkinson Canada also provides accredited continuing education for health professionals.

Our national Advocacy initiatives are helping to change policy at all levels of government and are identifying new voices to speak on behalf of people living with Parkinson’s.

Our proud tradition of funding Canadian-based research makes the National Research Program a vital contributor to Parkinson’s research in Canada. Since 1981 the generosity of donors like you has enabled Parkinson Canada to invest more than $24 million in over 450 research projects.
