IT’S ALL ABOUT BREATHING.

 

From the moment we enter the world, the urge to breathe is the most compelling drive we share.

The Lung Association is dedicated to helping all Canadians breathe.

Our community of donors, patients, researchers, volunteers and professional staff are dedicated to ensuring Canadians have the healthy lungs, body, and clean air, which are vital to healthy breathing.

We want to ensure no one takes their breathing for granted, and strive for better breathing for all.

Helping Canadians To Breathe

Graphic showing 5 in 5 canadians need to breathe

Whether it’s a premature baby fighting for air, a lung cancer patient undergoing treatment, or a teenager praying for a new set of lungs, all of us share responsibility to do something about the state of our nation’s breathing. Help us breathe life into our future.

PROMOTING HEALTHY BREATHING

We promote healthy breathing by fighting for policies that protect our air and educate Canadians about what they can do to promote their own lung health.

SUPPORTING THOSE WITH LUNG DISEASE

We support and advocate for those living with conditions that affect the lungs and the ability to breathe, and fight to challenge the stigma and ignorance that can be associated with lung disease.

FINDING FUTURE SOLUTIONS

Through education and research, we work to turn knowledge in to action and find cures to diseases that will deliver a future of better breathing for all.
