We have curated a list of national and regional support programs and foundations throughout Canada to help mitochondrial disease patients and caregivers source information and services.

Below you will find a resources listing for Ontario.

All hands on deck needed! We are a mighty organization, but a tiny one, and we need your help in keeping these lists up to date. If you find a link that is broken, please submit the link error here. Please provide the following information:

  • Link to the page on mitocanada.org where you found the broken link
  • The name of the link that is broken
  • A new link (if possible). If you found an updated link for that resources, please send the link, as it can be difficult to find new links
