Osteoporosis Canada, a registered charity, is the only national organisation serving people who have, or are at risk for, osteoporosis. The organisation works to educate, empower and support individuals and communities in the risk-reduction and treatment of osteoporosis.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of Canadians by preventing osteoporotic fracture through:
- Educating Canadians about Osteoporosis
- Advocating for optimal Osteoporosis care
- Investing strategically in Osteoporosis research
Implementation of Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) is a major short term objective for Osteoporosis Canada, as illustrated by our strategy Make the FIRST break the LAST with Fracture Liaison Services. Accordingly, Osteoporosis Canada recognises the importance of FLS as advocated by Osteoporosis NZ in their strategy BoneCare 2020.
