The Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada (TSFC) is a national, federally registered, voluntary health organization.

It's mission is to help individuals with Tourette Syndrome (TS) and their families by:
  • Gathering and distributing information;
  • Promoting local self-help and professional services;

It serves members throughout Canada, organizes workshops and symposia, provides periodic forums for scientists, clinicians and others working in the field of TS, and maintains an information and resource database.
