BREATHING. It’s what unites us. It’s what inspires us. And it’s what keeps our community of physicians, scientists, clinicians, educators, administrators, volunteers and donors so committed— whether it’s searching for cures to lung diseases, teaching kids about the dangers of tobacco, or fighting for clean air. The BC Lung Association is leading the way to breathing breakthroughs through research, policies and programs.

Dedicated to research, education, advocacy, and support programs the BC Lung Association is one of Canada's oldest and most respected health charities. We fund respiratory research, promote better management of lung disease, and address the effects of smoking and air quality on lung health.

Our researchers focus on a range of topics including, chronic lung disorders, infectious lung diseases and breathing disorders. This scope includes disorders such as asthma, COPD, tuberculosis, pneumonia, and sleep apnea.

Join our fight against lung disease and support the 1 in 5 Canadians who live with some form of lung disease. For more information about our ongoing initiatives, please visit www.bc.lung.ca.

When you can't breathe, nothing else matters.
