Menopause Foundation of Canada
The Menopause Foundation of Canada is a registered non-profit organization that was created to advocate for the support women need in their menopausal years from the health care system, government, business and the broader community. Women enter menopause in the prime of their lives, while they are making outsized contributions to their families, workplaces and society at large. Ending the silence, misinformation and stigma of menopause benefits us all. Ensuring women have access to care and treatment options through their health care journey, and that they are supported in the workplace, is critical to Canada’s success.
