About Us

Since 1954, dedicated volunteers and staff across the country have been raising funds to support the independence and full participation of Canadians with neuromuscular disorders. Thanks to our big-hearted donors, we’re able to fund research to improve the quality of life of people with neuromuscular disorders, and to seek a cure. We collaborate with other organizations to bring about positive social change. Ultimately, everything we do is for the benefit of people who need us..


To find a cure for neuromuscular disorders in our lifetime.


Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s mission is to enhance the lives of those affected with neuromuscular disorders by continually working to provide ongoing support and resources while relentlessly searching for a cure through well funded research.
