Parkinson Canada is the definitive voice of Canadians living with Parkinson’s disease. From diagnosis to discovery, Parkinson Canada provides research funding, education and services to support people with Parkinson’s, their families, and healthcare teams; online, by telephone and in person. Since 1965, Parkinson Canada has advocated with federal, provincial and territorial governments on issues that matter to the Parkinson’s community in Canada, all of which is made possible thanks to generous donors.
Brain Canada and the Canada Brain Research Fund
Brain Canada is a national registered charity that enables and supports excellent, innovative, and paradigm-changing brain research in Canada.
The Canada Brain Research Fund is a public-private partnership between the Government of Canada and Brain Canada, designed to encourage Canadians to increase their support of brain research, and maximize the impact and efficiency of those investments.
C-OPN's goal is to efficiently support Parkinson’s research to ultimately improve the lives of those living with the disease. These big discoveries aren’t possible in any single lab or clinic anywhere in the world. That’s why Parkinson Canada and Brain Canada have partnered with expert clinicians and researchers across the country to create the Canadian Open Parkinson Network. This is a large-scale, national research network that will dramatically enhance our capacity to uncover the answers and with the goal to deliver the personalized treatments and services that improve lives.
