Who We Are
Osteoporosis Canada is the only national organization serving people affected by osteoporosis. The organization works to educate, empower and support individuals and communities on bone health and in the risk-reduction and treatment of osteoporosis.
We were the world’s first organization dedicated to osteoporosis, the first to establish guidelines for long-term treatment and exercise, and the first to introduce fracture risk assessment.
With your help, we teach Canadians how to improve their bone health so osteoporosis can never take hold. We support those already diagnosed, and work to improve their quality of life. And we pursue research and treatment breakthroughs that keep more people healthy. Together, we will help make Canadians unbreakable.
Osteoporosis Canada supports Canadians living with Osteoporosis by:
