Hydrocephalus Canada

In November of 2017 the Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario (SB&H) began a process of change. We became Hydrocephalus Canada (HC), after supporting families, individuals and healthcare professionals in Ontario for more than 40 years as The Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario.

Hydrocephalus Canada incorporates the Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario (SB&H). As Hydrocephalus Canada, the new association continues to offer the same valued programs and services that the Ontario community relies upon. But more than that, we are expanding our mandate to include the growing number of people across Canada living with hydrocephalus and Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus.

This national expansion will strengthen the growing community of people living with hydrocephalus and enable us to better support advances in treatment for hydrocephalus and related neurological conditions such as spina bifida, the sharing of education and knowledge, and standards of care. Our mission is to offer strength and support for people living with hydrocephalus and related neurological conditions, and to contribute to awareness and research. At the same time, we will work to find a cure.

The new association will build on the legacy of SB&H in Ontario and use our experience, knowledge and drive to outreach, offer useful information and support for members, and share relevant research and treatment news across medical communities, academia, associations, and industry partners, provincially, nationally and globally.
