About Us

Our Vision:

We believe in a brighter future for those affected with and by Mucopolysaccharide (MPS) and related lysosomal diseases.  We envision a future where patients no longer die from MPS and related diseases because treatments have been developed, cures have been discovered, and our government has made these treatments and cures accessible to those who need and deserve them.  In the future we envision, those affected are living long, healthy and fulfilling lives - enjoying the company of their friends, children and grandchildren.

Our Mission:

Founded in 1984, The Canadian Society for Mucopolysaccharide and Related Diseases Inc. (The Canadian MPS Society) is committed to providing support to individuals and families affected with MPS and related diseases, educating medical professionals and the general public about MPS, and raising funds for research so that one day there will be cures for all types of MPS and related diseases. The Society is a registered charity governed by its Board of Directors with the support and expertise of its Medical Advisory Board.

• community and compassionate support
