Online consultation on patient/provider expectations

Take a few minutes to share your expectations on how health care should be delivered.

Public consultation on nutritional information in food labels

Health Canada is currently accepting input online about how nutritional information is presented on food labels. We strongly recommend that the potassium and phosphorus content be also listed to allow Canadians to make informed decisions for their health. You can help support our recommendation by providing your input.

Are You at Risk for Kidney Disease?

1 in 10 Canadians has kidney disease. Because there are often no symptoms, many people aren't aware that they have kidney disease. Take 10 minutes to answer 10 questions and find out if you are at risk at www.kidney.ca/risk.

Nominate a Volunteer in your Community
In recognition of our 50th Anniversary, The Kidney Foundation of Canada, Ontario Branch, will be celebrating 50 years of people, passion and progress thanks to an engaged and empowered kidney community. Nominations for our commemorative 50th anniversary volunteer award can be made by Kidney Foundation volunteers, affiliates, employees and supporters.  Help celebrate our 50th Anniversary by nominating someone in your community for a special volunteer award.

One in ten Canadians has kidney disease. Are you ONE?

The facts are startling.  One in 10 Canadians has kidney disease, which is one of the top 10 causes of death in Canada. Most Canadians don’t know the vital role that kidneys play and that they can lose up to 80 per cent of their kidney function – without even being aware of it.
