About Us

CYSTIC FIBROSIS CANADA

Cystic Fibrosis Canada is a national charitable not-for-profit corporation established in 1960, and is one of the world’s top three charitable organizations committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF). As an internationally recognized leader in funding innovation and clinical care, we invest more in life-saving CF research and care than any other non-governmental agency in Canada.

Since establishment, Cystic Fibrosis Canada has invested more than $261 million in leading research, innovation and care. As a result, Canadians with cystic fibrosis have one of the highest median survival rates in the world.

We rely on the generous support of our volunteers, donors, and partners in our shared mission to improve the lives of Canadians living with cystic fibrosis, and ultimately to find a cure for this devastating disease.

OUR VISION

A world without cystic fibrosis.

Our mission

To end cystic fibrosis (CF). We will help all people living with CF by funding targeted world-class research, supporting and advocating for high-quality individualized CF care and raising and allocating funds for these purposes.

VALUES

As one team with ONE CFocus, Cystic Fibrosis Canada remains committed to four core values:

Excellence starts with the belief that striving for the ultimate solution or goal is the only path worth following. By challenging the status quo, we are dedicated to achieving or surpassing all of our goals in support of creating a better future for Canadians with CF.

Accountability means we are committed to financial stewardship with, and for, all stakeholders of Cystic Fibrosis Canada by providing proper governance in relation to our policies and charters. Our organization is well managed, a great place to work, volunteer, or invest in and we always deliver results to the Canadians with CF we are trying to help.

Teamwork gives an integrated and united front that speaks as one voice with common goals. We value and are committed to building strong relationships with all of our partners, including volunteers, corporate partners, employees, donors, researchers and clinicians. We strive to help Canadians with CF gain the quality of life they deserve through information, education and the
development and delivery of resources.

Caring allows us to provide an encouraging and supportive environment that will inspire the best possible care, treatment and research for Canadians living with CF.
