Our RARE DISEASE INFORMATION AND RESOURCE CENTRE can serve you too!
We can give you any information you want on any rare disease (guidelines for management and treatment, experts of the disease, patient organizations, research projects, clinical trials, therapies in development or on the market, etc.). You can also ask for our “Matching service”: we can search for other Canadian(s) with the same or similar disease as yours.

The information is transmitted by health professionals or competent trained personnel.
We do not give medical advice and we suggest that you discuss the information with your doctors.
If you want, we can put you in contact with another person or family with the same or similar disease.
Yourself or a family member is affected by a genetic disease and you have questions?
We can refer you to a Genetics service near you.
