Want to Volunteer?


Tourette Canada is dedicated to improving the lives of Canadians affected by Tourette Syndrome (TS) and associated conditions. We’re national in scope and volunteer-based.

Our programs are structured to promote broad-based national awareness and understanding of Tourette Syndrome; educate the community about the Syndrome and support meaningful engagement between children, adults and families living with Tourette and the community at large.

Much of our work involves directly supporting families with TS diagnoses via peer-to peer support groups in communities where an affiliate has been established.

By leveraging technology, an open invitation is extended to all to engage in online or virtual peer-to-peer support groups to build camaraderie, share experiences, gain knowledge and create a community of inclusion, understanding, respect and capacity.

Tourette Canada provides education and training to qualified individuals who facilitate educational opportunities to not only advocate on behalf of the TS individual within the school and work settings but also provide arenas whereby open exchanges of information and learning can happen.

We are proud of and look forward to opportunities where we can customize presentations to sector specific stakeholders such as First Responders, Educators, Clinicians, and the general workplace, etc. to support inclusion and understanding of Tourette Syndrome and its associated disorders.

Tourette Canada does not receive government funding and relies on the generosity of the community to support its ongoing efforts to achieve its Vision – to achieve an empowered Tourette community in an inclusive Canada.
