Our History

The Lung Association is one of Canada’s oldest voluntary not for profit health promotion organizations. We were first established in 1904 (1944 in Newfoundland & Labrador) to control the spread of Tuberculosis. Today, the mission of the Lung Association is to prevent and control ALL lung disease and to "protect the air we breathe".

The Association has quite a history, and listed below is a small portion of the many people and events that made us what we are today. Click on the links to learn more about each.
