The AAIA's mission is to create safer environments and improve quality of life for Canadians affected by allergy, asthma, and anaphylaxis by empowering individuals and providing education, leadership, and a national voice.
We are a federally registered Canadian charity dedicated to helping allergic individuals and their families cope with everything from the sniffles and sneezes of allergic rhinitis to life-threatening allergies and asthma. We are the only Canadian patient association that deals with all aspects of allergy, including asthma, allergic rhinitis and anaphylaxis, in English and in French. Our network of members and volunteers is drawn from all provinces and territories.
Our goal is to help the 30% of Canadians affected by allergies, asthma and anaphylaxis to live lives that are as normal as possible — at home, school, work and play. Our focus is on education and prevention. Our strategy is based on Awareness, Avoidance, and Action. We strive to be the best possible resource for up-to-date and medically accurate information about allergies.
