We are still here to serve you and provide ways to connect with the Canadian mito community. MitoCanada’s support for those affected by mitochondrial disease continues to operate normally at this time. Our toll-free number (1-877-708-6486 (MITO)) and Facebook Peer2Peer Support Group play an important role in helping patients and caregivers better manage mitochondrial disease.

The goal of our peer-to-peer Facebook group is to create a vibrant community of mitochondrial disease patients and caregivers to share insights and ideas, and help answer each other’s questions from the comfort of your own home.
