About Hemophilia Ontario
Hemophilia Ontario is a provincially incorporated charitable organization and a member of the Canadian Hemophilia Society. Alongside dedicated staff, Hemophilia Ontario is largely volunteer-driven with a volunteer Board of Directors and volunteer regional councils. An inherited bleeding disorder is a serious condition that affects the ability of blood to clot, which can result in rapid or prolonged bleeding on the onset, with the potential for joint damage and other serious medical issues. Established in 1956, Hemophilia Ontario’s mission is to strive to improve the health and quality of life for all people with inherited bleeding disorders, and to find a cure. Hemophilia Ontario pursues this mission through strategic objectives that have been clearly defined by our stakeholders and endorsed by the Board. We are an evolving organization that seeks to achieve our vision of a better life for all affected by a bleeding disorder.
