About Us

With you for life!

The Kidney Foundation of Canada is people working together for a common cause. We are volunteers, individuals living with kidney disease, donors and staff members - from all walks of life, all across Canada. Since it's creation in 1964, The Kidney Foundation has helped millions of Canadian suffering from kidney failure and related disorders such as hypertension, diabetes, urinary tract infections and kidney stones.

The Kidney Foundation of Canada is committed to improving the health and quality of life of people living with kidney disease and those at risk. Our goal is to provide support, be an active voice for change and collaborate with specialists in the fields of kidney-related research to bring innovative solutions from the lab bench to the bedside.

With the number of people living with kidney disease growing every day, our work must continue and, with the commitment of friends like you, it will. Thank you in advance for your generous support.
