Uniting around immunodeficiency

ImmUnity Canada is a not-for-profit charitable organization with over 25 years experience specializing in improving the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of patients living with immunodeficiency in Canada.

We work hard on your behalf to address national and provincial issues at the policy-level, such as pushing for a national newborn screening program, increasing Canada’s plasma supply and access to plasma products. We ensure that the patient voice is at the heart of discussions impacting your access to comprehensive healthcare.

With an estimated 50,000 individuals living with primary immunodeficiency alone in Canada, and currently 70% of those yet to be diagnosed, we specialize in education for the patient and health professionals. We also understand the importance of providing emotional and social support to members, connecting patients with one another through our ImmUnity CommUnity.
