The Lung Association
For more than 100 years, The Lung Association has been dedicated to its mission of promoting and improving lung health for all Canadians. A non-profit and volunteer-based health charity, The Lung Association depends on donations from the public to support lung health research, education, prevention and advocacy.
The Lung Association movement began in 1900 to control the spread of tuberculosis and provide better services for TB patients. Today, The Lung Association focuses on all issues that affect the ability of Canadians to breathe.
Our provincial and national offices work together to help the one in five Canadians who have breathing problems.
For information on the provincial associations, please see the Canadian Lung Association website.
