The MitoCanada Foundation is Canada’s only not-for-profit organization focused on improving the lives of children and adults affected by mitochondrial disease/dysfunction. We envision a future where Canadians of all ages, who are directly and indirectly impacted by mitochondrial disease, feel inspired, empowered and supported to live their best lives. We do this by raising awareness; offering knowledge and supports to patients, families, and caregivers; and funding Canadian research.
Founded in 2009 by a group of Canadian parents with children who had been given a diagnosis of mitochondrial disease, MitoCanada brings the patient voice to mitoNET.ca. Furthermore, MitoCanada encourages and engages in collaborations that contribute to advancing diagnosis, prevention, treatment, policy, and advocacy. MitoCanada is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and powered by TEAMmito. See More
