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.

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.


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.


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.
