Celebrate the CLF and learn about your Region!

The Canadian Liver Foundation Montreal Chapter needs your help bringing liver research to life through awareness campaigns, health fairs, education forums, and fundraising initiatives. You or a loved one may have been impacted personally by liver disease. Or you may be interested in our work because you have recognized that more and more people are living with liver disease. Regardless of your motivation, we want to provide you with meaningful ways to get involved!

Over 20% of Quebecers may be affected by liver disease, from newborns older adults. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common liver disease, affecting over 1.6 million people in Quebec alone. In Montreal, we are actively raising funds in support of liver research and education in order to make a difference!

2017 marks the re-introduction of the Canadian Liver Foundation to the Montreal community. For the first time, we are hosting a grand gala soiree event in November, to be one of many LIVERight Gala events across the country. We can only do this with the support of kind volunteers, sponsors, and donors.

Support Programs and Services

The National Help Line. This help line gives you and your loved one somewhere to turn for answers after diagnosis, helps you understand your disease, and provides you with the resources you need.  You can call 1 (800) 563-5483 Monday to Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM EST.

The Peer Support Network. This program is a national network of people living with liver disease who have offered to share their experiences with others. It was developed by the Canadian Liver Foundation as a means to link Canadians who have been diagnosed with a liver disease, have a family member who has liver disease or care for someone who suffers from liver disease to talk about your concerns in a safe environment with a peer who has had a similar experience.

If you would like to be connected with a peer supporter in your area, or would like to join the peer support network, please call 1 (800) 563-5483 or email Billie Potkonjak.
