A National COPD Patient's Advocacy Association

COPD Canada is a non-profit patient advocacy association that was established in 2005 and operates independently. Our association is dedicated to providing educational materials to individuals in Canada who are affected by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). 

At the core of COPD Canada lies our commitment to building, advocating for, and maintaining a national community of patients burdened with COPD. We strive to enhance public awareness and visibility of this condition throughout the nation. To achieve this, we offer various educational resources in different formats, employing diverse delivery methods.

It is important to note that membership is free-of-charge and available to individuals diagnosed with COPD or their caregivers. As a valued member of COPD Canada, you will receive complimentary printed copies of our community newsletter, titled "LIVING WITH COPD."  

COPD Canada also diligently reviews and interprets the latest scientific and medical advancements related to emphysema and chronic bronchitis from reputable sources worldwide. Through these efforts, we ensure that up-to-date information, presented in easily understandable language, is readily accessible to Canadians coping with COPD. Moreover, the scientific and medical information we monitor is skillfully condensed into digest format, known as "The COPD Digest." This valuable resource is distributed exclusively to select members of the Canadian medical profession, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
