Lymphedema Association of Ontario

About the LAO

Currently, the Lymphedema Association of Ontario (LAO) strives to help people living with lymphedema and healthcare professionals by offering information about lymphedema and lymphedema resources in Ontario. 

This includes:

All of this information is provided through our

  • website
  • patient education pamphlets 
    (a copy is available on our website to download and print)
  • exhibits at various healthcare awareness events
  • toll free information line and information via email   
    1-877-723-0033 | 416-410-2250 |

We also offer a membership which includes copies of Pathways, the quarterly Canadian national lymphedema magazine and our newsletter insert, Lymphedema Matters, and occasional LAO e-newsletters

All revenues that support the Lymphedema Association of Ontario come from any proceeds made from membership fees, donations, an annual charity fundraiser, and advertising in our Pathways magazine newsletter insert, Lymphedema Matters

The LAO is run by a volunteer board of directors who are dedicated individuals working from their home.
