The Alzheimer Society of Ontario's vision is a world without Alzheimer Disease and related disorders.

About Our Charity

The Alzheimer Society of Ontario’s Today’s Help, Tomorrow’s Cure Campaign is reaching out to the almost 150,000 Ontarians who have Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias (ADRD). By 2031 that number will increase by nearly 127%. That means that we will be caring for over 175,000 cases in 2010 and by 2031 there will be over 340,000 cases in the province. Our goal is to help persons with Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias, their families and caregivers today, while engaging in research to put an end to this devastating disease. With your support we fund nationwide research to address the psychological and social aspects of AD such as care giving, family support and long-term care as well as biomedical investigations to find causes and treatments. The Alzheimer Society of Ontario helps local chapters deliver services by providing consultation as well as financial and educational support. In addition, we assist in program development, fundraising and supportive public policy.
