The PEI Lung Association is a community based, charitable organization committed to assisting Islanders to promote, improve, and participate in their lung health through education, advocacy and research. For over 100 years, The Canadian Lung Association has been dedicated to its mission of promoting and improving lung health for all Canadians.
The Lung Association movement began in 1900 to control the spread of tuberculosis and provide better services for TB patients. Today, The Lung Association focuses on all issues that affect the ability of Canadians to breathe every day. The mission of the Canadian Lung Association is to lead nationwide and international lung health initiatives, prevent lung disease, help people manage lung disease and promote lung health. Our Provincial and national offices work together to help the one in five Canadians who have breathing problems.
Our Board of Directors represents the interests of people with lung disease, allied health care professionals, and community advocates.
