Understanding the role of the Alzheimer Society of Canada

The Alzheimer Society is Canada’s leading nationwide health charity supporting people living with all forms of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, as well as their caregivers and their families.

We rely on individual and corporate donors, communities and health-care partners to help us deliver on our mission.

Active in communities across Canada, the Society offers programs and support services, fundraises to advance research, advocates for policy change, and increases public awareness.

Take the pledge

I pledge to:

  • BE VOCAL if I hear a joke or other conversations that create stigma.
  • BE PATIENT if I encounter someone with dementia.
  • BE SUPPORTIVE to people living with dementia and their families.
