Lymphedema is a condition of permanent swelling of one or more areas of the body. There are an estimated one million Canadians living with lymphedema (also referred to as, “chronic edema”), and yet diagnosis and treatment remains widely unknown in the medical community.
Our mission is to improve the management of lymphedema and related disorders in Canada. In collaboration with the International Lymphoedema Framework (ILF) and the American Lymphedema Framework Project (ALFP), we will contribute to the global advancement of lymphedema care.
Our vision is that comprehensive treatment for lymphedema and related disorders will be accessible to all persons across Canada.
