Research moves us forward. Your support will get us closer to life-altering treatments, better care and cures for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.

Group of researchers.

Research is getting us closer every day to finding the cause and cures for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, as well as new and effective approaches to improving care and quality of life for those living with dementia.

Finding a treatment will benefit all Canadians by improving the lives of all who are touched by dementia, reducing the growing burden on our health care system, and helping to create a better future for the next generation.

The Alzheimer Society of Canada is proud to support some of Canada’s brightest minds in this vital work.
