The Turner Syndrome Society of Canada is dedicated to enriching the lives of all those affected by Turner Syndrome through support, information & education. We offer:
Information is made available to the community, educators, doctors and other helping professionals, via our newsletters, this web site, and a reference library at our national office.
The conference presents new medical findings and provides an opportunity for a free exchange of information between individuals living with Turner Syndrome and family members.
Our local chapters and contact groups offer support and a sense of community to those dealing with TS. These support groups provide opportunities for individuals with Turners Syndrome to celebrate successes and build friendships, as well as a safe place to discuss fears, troublesome experiences and “taboo” subjects. Parents of girls with TS gain information to help their daughters, and the chance to network both with other parents and with successful adult women with TS. The Society also has a toll free telephone line for those seeking information or connection with other TS families.
