About our Chapter

HISTORY

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.


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

Mission
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.

Values
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:

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

Connectedness
By being well connected to our grassroots community.

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

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

Integrity
By acting honestly, responsibly, openly and accountably.

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

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