Since our founding in 1978, the Alzheimer Society of Canada has grown and expanded to serve Canadians from coast to coast. For over forty years our mission has never wavered: to alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer’s and related diseases and to promote the search for causes, treatments and a cure.
Dementia is arguably the greatest health challenge of Canada’s aging society. By the year 2050, more than 1.7 million Canadians are expected to be living with dementia, with an average of 685 individuals being diagnosed each day. It is imperative that we make our best efforts to delay the onset of dementia, if not prevent it outright.
By remembering the Alzheimer Society of Canada in your Will, you can help create
a world without dementia and change the future for families all across Canada.
Active across Canada, the Alzheimer Society offers programs and support services, raises funds and provides public awareness and knowledge of dementia.
In addition, our Alzheimer Society Research Program helped to fund 31 new projects across Canada in 2022, totalling over $3.5 million in grants and awards. These grants fund Canadian researchers working to bring us closer to life-altering treatments, better care and cures for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias
Our research, programs and services are almost entirely funded by private donations from donors like you. With your support, we can work together to break new ground in research while providing the necessary supports for caregivers and those living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
