About our Chapter


Founded in 1956, Hemophilia Ontario is the Ontario Chapter of the Canadian Hemophilia Society. A volunteer driven organization, we are a provincially incorporated charitable organization with offices in Ottawa, Toronto, Sudbury, Hamilton, Thunder Bay, and London.


A world free from the pain and suffering of inherited bleeding disorders.


Our mission is to strive to improve the health and quality of life for all people with inherited bleeding disorders, and to find a cure.


At Hemophilia Ontario, an integral part of our current organizational identity and experience is based in the loss suffered by the hemophilia community, those with inherited bleeding disorders and other who were infected with HIV and/or Hepatitis C and their families, friends and communities; through blood or blood products they depended on for lifesaving treatment and therapy over the past two decades.  With this principle at our core, Hemophilia Ontario is guided by the following values in the work we undertake:


By providing information, programs and services to all people with inherited bleeding disorders of all ages and their families.


By being well connected to our grassroots community.


By actively representing people with inherited bleeding disorders to improve their quality of life while working towards a cure.


By achieving quality, efficiency and innovation while remaining open to change.


By acting honestly, responsibly, openly and accountably.


By treating the people with whom we interact with dignity, fairness and compassion.


By fostering meaningful and collegial relations, and strong partnerships among our diverse stakeholders.
