The MitoCanada Foundation is Canada’s only not-for-profit organization focused on mitochondrial disease. Our charitable organization was formed in 2010 by a group of passionate Canadian parents whose previously happy, healthy children were given a diagnosis of mitochondrial disease. Not willing to be victims of such overwhelming twists of fate, these individuals set out to find solutions that would transform the outlook for their children and to protect others. Through their efforts, they are helping others living with, or at risk of developing, mitochondrial disease cope and find hope in each day.
