Wounds Canada is the voice for Canadian people at risk of or living with wounds and their providers.

Established in 1995, Wounds Canada is a charitable organization dedicated to the advancement of wound prevention and management for all Canadians. We accomplish this by advocating for a population health approach that promotes best practices to support persons at risk of or living with wounds, health decision makers and frontline clinicians. We develop and provide educational programs and resources as well as support research to further advance this holistic, risk-based approach. We foster relationships with interested individuals and organizations to expand and sustain a robust wound community in Canada that also has mutually beneficial global connections. Our goal is to reduce the prevalence and incidence of wounds of all types and the negative consequences they bring—including patient suffering and wasted health-care dollars. 


A Canada where preventable wounds do not occur and persons living with wounds receive the best possible care.


Wounds Canada's mission is to advance wound prevention and care for Canadians.
