Mission Statement

COPD Canada is a non-profit educational society and patient advocacy group focused on providing support for people living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Our goal is to increase national public awareness of COPD and to upgrade the information, services and support currently available to patients and their families. The group’s long-range objectives include the prevention of COPD as well as enhancing the treatment of COPD through education, patient care and advocacy.

To this end, COPD Canada collaborates ands cooperates with government health agencies, the scientific, medical, pharmaceutical and business communities as well as the general population of Canadians living with lung disease.
