Since 1990 when the Canadian Addison Society was founded, the membership has grown from 13 to about 150 members.

The number of people with Addison's disease varies with surveys in different countries depending on how these surveys are done, but in the United States, between 6 and 11 out of every 100,000 people will be diagnosed with this disease. The statistics are probably the same in Canada. With this low prevalence of the disease, you may not have met anyone else who has this problem and it can be supportive to discuss your experience with others who have a similar problem.

The primary purpose of our site is to offer information about Addison's Disease. Through our various support groups, we have contacts who may be able to provide information to the many questions a newly diagnosed Addisonian might have; as well as the opportunity of personal contact with somebody who has experienced some of the concerns associated with the disease. Our third goal is to help educate not only the medical society but also the public to aspects of the disease.

The Canadian Addison Society (La Société canadienne d'Addison) is designated as a registered charitable organization under the Income Tax Act of Canada by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), # 87248 5511 RR0001.
