5 Goals for 5 Years

Our Commitment

When we re-introduced ourselves as the Lung Health Foundation, our message was clear: we will end gaps in the prevention, diagnosis, and care of lung disease in Canada. 

The goals that we are unveiling today are bolder — because we are bolder.  

Starting today, our five areas of focus are matched up with 5 powerful, outcome-based aspirations that are guiding and structuring everything we do:


Our goal: Zero deaths attributed to asthma

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Our goal: 10% reduction in hospitalizations due to COPD

Lung Cancer

Our goal: 5% increase in lung cancer survivorship


Our goal: 5% increase in rates of vaccination against influenza and pneumococcal disease for adults 50+

Smoking & Vaping Prevention & Cessation

Our goal: 10% reduction in the rate of tobacco and cannabis smoking/vaping amongst youth
