My Community – Quebec

Stroll for Liver participants walk through a green and yellow archway to start the walk

Celebrate the CLF and learn about Quebec Region!

Last year marked the re-introduction of the Canadian Liver Foundation to the Montreal community. For the first time ever, we hosted a grand LIVERight gala soiree event and a Promenade Nocturne. We couldn’t have done this without the support of kind volunteers, sponsors, and donors like you.

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!

Support Programs and Services

Montreal Patient Program. This program is  currently under development. We hope to have patient information sessions beginning in Spring 2018. If you are interested to sign up to attend, or to volunteer, please contact Anne Brisson at (514) 457-7575 or abrisson@liver.ca

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.
