For patients and families with unexplained health conditions, genome-wide sequencing can provide much-needed answers, but it can also raise a lot of questions. We are trying to figure out the best ways to provide genetic counselling for genome-wide sequencing in Canada so that we can best support these families. We will be looking into different clinical, ethical, and economic methods to make sure there is equitable access to genetic counselling and testing for all Canadians.

We believe there’s nothing we can’t do with your support. It can take years to turn scientific breakthrough into new interventions and treatments. Funding helps speed the pace of change. When given the resources, we can bring transformative therapies – and hope – out of the laboratory and into the clinic to save and improve children’s lives.
