The Kidney Foundation of Canada, London & District Chapter
The Kidney Foundation of Canada is people working together for a common cause. We are volunteers, individuals living with kidney disease, donors, and staff members — from all walks of life, all across Canada.
The Kidney Foundation of Canada exists for the enhancement of kidney health and the reduction and, if possible, the elimination of the burden of kidney diseases. The primary beneficiaries are people at risk of or affected by kidney disease.
The Kidney Foundation provides:
New knowledge and treatments generating hope will exist in the following areas:
- Knowledge of the kidney and kidney disease.
- Methods by which the new knowledge from research results can be translated into the treatment, prevention, and slowing of the progression of kidney disease.
To achieve optimal health status, all people affected by kidney disease have access to healthcare and to wellness, socio-emotional, and financial support including:
- Equitable access to appropriate cost-effective treatment, as close to home as possible, regardless of background and personal circumstances.
- Timely access to successful long-term organ transplantation, if desired and appropriate.
- Comfort for those who withdraw from or do not wish dialysis treatment.
All people affected by kidney disease are empowered to maximize their outcomes.

- People can advocate for themselves and others when navigating the system.
- The kidney community has a sense of belonging and a collective voice.
