About Us

The Canadian Chiari Association was founded in 2014 as a non profit registered charity organization.  Our goals are to spread awareness of this condition and to help mobilize the medical community in the fight against chiari. 

Monies raised by the CCA will assist us in these goals as well as to help those in need of financial assistance for Financial Support Programs such as travel and accommodations, Financial Support Drug Programs for symptom control drugs and housekeeping to name a few.

The Canadian Chiari Association is an Affiliate Member of the Canadian Organization of Rare Disorders (CORD).
