Media Room

Tourette Syndrome is a poorly understood, stigmatized neurological disorder characterized by tics: involuntary, rapid, sudden movements or vocalizations that occur repeatedly in the same way. It affects 1 in 100 Canadians, begins in childhood and has no cure.

We are the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada (TSFC), the only national, volunteer-based organization assisting individuals affected by Tourette Syndrome (TS) and its associated disorders. We offer a wide variety of support programs and services to the TS community and awareness initivatives aimed at educating the Canadian public.

We invite members of the media to join with us in fulfilling our vision: That all people who have Tourette Syndrome will lead quality lives as accepted and valued members of an informed, tolerant society.
