About Parkinson Society Central & Northern Ontario

Parkinson Society Canada is a national, not-for-profit, volunteer based charity with more than 240 chapters and many support groups working nationwide.

The Central & Northern Ontario region of Parkinson Society Canada contributes to the national research program while regionally offering support services, information and specialized programs to ease the burden for those living with this chronic, degenerative neurological disorder.

The Central & Northern Ontario region covers a large geographic area from St. Catharines to Kingston and then north to include all of Northern Ontario. The region is divided into five districts: North, Toronto, East, West and Central (York Simcoe). Each area has a number of chapter or support groups with a Community Development Coordinator assigned to support People Living With Parkinson’s throughout the region.
