Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation of Canada


More than 66,000 Canadians and 12.5 million newborns, children and adults worldwide battle polycystic kidney disease (PKD) each and every day. PKD is the most common, life-threatening genetic disease, affecting more people than Down syndrome, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and sickle cell anemia — ALL COMBINED. Our Mission is to promote programs of research, advocacy, education, support and awareness in order to discover treatments and a cure for polycystic kidney disease and improve the lives of all it affects.
