We’re changing the landscape of women’s health in Canada.

WHCC was created by three of Canada’s leading women’s health and hospital foundations to break the barriers holding us back from providing women(1) with the knowledge and care they deserve.

Through intentional collaboration, WHCC brings resources, fundraising, and some of the brightest minds in science and healthcare together to address the wider gaps we can’t tackle on our own.

(1) Please note, when WHCC refers to “women”, we are referring to women in all their diversity, inclusive of LGBTQiIA+ individuals.

Women can lead corporations and fly fighter jets, but they continue to be misdiagnosed, neglected, dismissed - or told their symptoms are all in their heads. We’re punching through glass ceilings everywhere, but the fact of the matter is there’s still a glass wall through which women are not being heard.
