This month, we would like to introduce you to Lupus Ontario – an organization that supports people living with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus in the province. They fundraise for lupus research, host support groups, and provide education to members. Visit their website to learn more!


Lupus Ontario is the largest provincial organization in Canada dedicated to improving the lives of lupus patients. We provide education and support to lupus patients and their families, through support groups, monthly webinars, and our newsletter. Our education resources can be found here:

We aim to create awareness through our social media, website and annual events. We annually fund six Ontario Lupus Clinics to maintain research databases and support programs.

We fund research, through our annual Geoff Carr Lupus Fellowship, which has raised $2.2 million since 1990, allowing us to train 30 rheumatologists at an accredited Ontario Lupus Clinic to perform research and specialize in lupus diagnosis and treatment. The annual grant of $65,000 is awarded to a rheumatology resident to extend their study for a year at an Ontario Lupus clinic and perform lupus research.

Our annual Research Campaign is kicking off October 4th, please visit for more information or to make a donation.
