WHO WE ARE

The Lupus Foundation of Ontario was founded in 1977 to serve the lupus patient community. Incorporated and registered as a non-profit charitable organization, we provide information and support to the thousands who seek assistance. Semi-annual newsletters, “Lupus Talk”, a complete library of books and informative articles are available to all members and the public to assist in learning about lupus, developing life skills and coping strategies. Periodic seminars are held with varying topics and demonstrations available.  

The Lupus Foundation of Ontario maintains an active program of support to family physicians through the distribution of literature on a province-wide basis and provides funds annually to a number of research projects and treatment facilities. By participating in national “October is Lupus Awareness Month” and “May l0th World Lupus Day” campaigns, we promote greater public awareness and facilitate earlier diagnosis through knowledge of the disease.  

Each May, Lupus Foundation of Ontario participates in a Walk to raise much-needed funding for public awareness initiatives, up-to-date literature and materials and research. Please contact our office for further information as to how you may participate in this worthwhile event.
