About Our Charity
There are approximately 3 million Canadians with asthma. Asthma is a respiratory disease that can lead to emergency room visits, hospitalizations and sometimes death. Research indicates that 60-80% of Canadians with asthma have poor control of their disease. This means that 1.5-2.5 million people are at risk of experiencing a severe asthma attack, and they are not aware of the risk.
The Asthma Society of Canada (ASC) is a national charitable volunteer-supported organization solely devoted to enhancing the quality of life and health for people living with Asthma, Associated Allergies and COPD through education and research. Since its inception in 1974, the ASC provides a variety of asthma education and awareness programs, funds many research projects (to gain a better understanding of the disease and how it can be better managed) and has gained a reputation for providing high quality Asthma education and information to Canadian asthma consumers.
