About Us

The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) Canada is a registered non-profit Canadian charity founded in 1976 by Samuel and Frances Belzberg of Vancouver, British Columbia.

DMRF Canada funds medical research toward a cure, promotes awareness and education, and supports the well-being of affected individuals and families. We work in partnership with the DMRF in the United States to ensure funding of the best and most relevant dystonia medical research worldwide and with other like-minded research organizations to fund excellent dystonia research in Canada.

DMRF Canada is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
