Extend Your Hand to Support Wound Prevention and Care


Wounds are a significant health issue in Canada. They come in all forms, pressure ulcers (bedsores), surgical wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, burns, traumatic wounds, lower leg ulcers and more. Most wounds heal quickly, many others become complicated because of infection, repeated trauma or underlying disease conditions that inhibit healing. Many are preventable. 

The Wounds Canada Foundation is a charitable organization that supports public awareness of all types of wounds and care, assists the wound care community and provides crucial informational resources for patients. Our board consists of compassionate individuals who collectively share a common goal to improve patient outcomes and support wound care and skin health.

The Foundation furthers the work of Wounds Canada, which, for nearly 25 years, has been dedicated to advancing wound prevention and care through education, communication and advocacy.
