About Us

Our Story

The Endometriosis Network Canada is dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals living with endometriosis across Canada. As a registered charity in Canada founded in 2012, our measurable impact includes providing support and education to thousands of Canadians, developing dedicated programs for underserved communities, raising awareness, and impacting policy across Canada.

In 2012, a group of individuals with endometriosis came together with a common goal – to improve the quality of life for people living with endometriosis across Canada.

They recognized the need for resources and support, and founded The Endometriosis Network Canada as a not-for-profit organization to fulfill this need. Through their dedication and hard work, The Endometriosis Network Canada became a registered charity in 2016, and continues to inspire and support those affected by endometriosis while expanding their reach across Canada. The Endometriosis Network Canada team’s unwavering commitment to making a difference has brought hope and comfort to countless individuals affected by the chronic illness.
