Our Vision

Kidney health, and improved lives for all people affected by kidney disease. 


Our Mission

The Kidney Foundation of Canada is a national, volunteer organization committed to reducing the burden of kidney disease through:



  • funding and stimulating innovative research;


  • providing education and support;


  • promoting access to high quality health care; and,


  • increased public awareness and commitment to advancing kidney health and organ donation.




Principles of Care






  • Treatment for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) should be available to all individuals who can benefit from it and want it, regardless of age, gender, race, employment status, geographical location, co-morbid conditions, physical or mental disability.

  • All medically suitable individuals with CKD should be referred for consideration of dialysis or transplantation in a timely manner.


  • All individuals with CKD should have access to a comprehensive continuum of ethical treatment and support services aimed at optimizing patient outcomes and quality of life.


  • All individuals with CKD should have access to an appropriately qualified interdisciplinary healthcare team as part of a comprehensive continuum of treatment.


  • All individuals with CKD and their families should be provided with information about all treatment options so that they are able to participate fully in decisions about their care and make informed choices.


  • All individuals with CKD have the right to refuse or discontinue treatment, and to be supported in their decision.


  • No individual with CKD should be denied access to medically necessary drugs and nutritional supplements because of inability to pay.


  • Treatment and support services for CKD should be delivered in a consistent and cost-effective manner throughout Canada.
