Public Service Announcement
Presenting The Canadian Continence Foundation's 2010 Public Service Announcement. Click the Play button in the video box below to view this announcement.
The Canadian Continence Foundation was formed in 1986 to address the needs of consumers experiencing urinary incontinence. Until that point there was virtually no help or information available to the general public.
The Foundation is a national non - profit organization that is a registered charity..
The need is great as there are over 3.3 million Canadians experiencing urinary incontinence.
The Canadian Continence Foundation strives to encourage consumers to seek help from a healthcare professional and not suffer in silence.
We provide a wealth of information on incontinence, as we believe consumers are "taking charge of their healthcare" and information is power.
