You’re not alone.
There are over 485 primary immunodeficiency diseases, yet they are rare genetic disorders that most people haven’t heard of before. ImmUnity Canada has programs, resources and a community that can help ease your struggles, whether you are a patient or a loved one.
Connect with your community
Our bi-weekly virtual patient meetups are a great opportunity to connect with other PI patients and supporters across Canada.
Stay tuned for the return of monthly in-person meetups in 2023!
