Muscular Dystrophy Canada supports the independence and full participation of Canadians with neuromuscular disorders. We assist individuals to participate in the decisions that affect them and collaborate with others for social change. We fund research to improve the quality of life of people with neuromuscular disorders and to find a cure.
About MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY CANADA/DYSTROPHIE MUSCULAIRE CANADA
Since 1954, Muscular Dystrophy Canada has been committed to improving the quality of life for the tens of thousands of Canadians with neuromuscular disorders and funding leading research for the discovery of therapies and cures for neuromuscular disorders.
We strive to ensure that people with neuromuscular disorders lead full and engaged lives by providing services that increase mobility and encourage independence. We also aim to increase the awareness of neuromuscular disorders and their implications amongst Canadians to motivate changes in social policy at a national level.
