Tourette Canada is a member-driven organization that anyone can join.
In addition to the many benefits you get for becoming a member, you make Tourette Canada stronger by helping fund vital programs and services; your membership reflects in higher stakeholder numbers, demonstrating a need for support in the form of donor dollars and grant funding, helping us reach more people living with TS in Canada.
Memberships help to create and maintain programs and services for the TS and TS+ community. This support includes training of In-Service facilitators, In-Service presentations at schools. workplaces, and community agencies.
Your contribution funds Virtual Support Groups for adults, youth and parents; establishes community support in under-serviced areas across Canada and provides resources to those looking for services within their local region.
Memberships are 12 months, running from June 1 to May 31. Individual and Family Memberships are available. Become a monthly donor by contributing a minimum of $10 per month and receive a FREE family membership.
