About Us: The Canadian Mesothelioma Foundation is a registered charity focused on building awareness about the dangers of asbestos exposure and supporting mesothelioma patients and their families and caregivers. Mesothelioma is a terrible cancer, which is almost exclusively caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos-related diseases are the number one cause of work place deaths in Canada. Even though asbestos is now banned in Canada, over 500 new cases a year are diagnosed here, and that number is expected to continue to climb.
