If you or someone you know is affected by muscular dystrophy, we are here to help.
Muscular Dystrophy Canada offers a wide range of services and programs. We are committed to improving the lives of people with neuromuscular disorders.
Muscular Dystrophy Canada offers up-to-date information about the different types of neuromuscular disorders and research that is helping to find effective cures and therapies.
Throughout the year, we host local workshops, as well as Nation-wide teleconferences, on various topics. Our staff and volunteers are also available to provide educational presentations to groups, such as schools, local businesses, services clubs, and health care providers.

Wheelchairs, scooters, orthotics, hospital beds and other essential equipment can cost tens of thousands of dollars annually. We aim to reduce the burden on families by helping to provide funding for new equipment, as well as batteries and repairs. In some situations, we may also be able to provide equipment on loan.
You are not alone! Muscular Dystrophy Canada staff and volunteers are here to point you in the right direction. Our knowledgeable services staff can provide referrals and contact information to neuromuscular clinics, agencies and other community resources to find solutions to the day-to-day problems you face.
You can also join one of our local chapters of volunteers. Chapters offer a supportive network and are a great opportunity to connect with others who are in a similar situation.
Add your voice to ours to ensure that people with neuromuscular disorders can participate fully in all aspects of daily living.
