Health Canada has already developed the Orphan Drug Regulatory Framework and announced it in 2012. It is ready to go. Unfortunately, it has never been published and approved.

Please join us in signing this Canadian Organization for Rare Disorders petition, and asking the Minister of Health, the Honourable Rona Ambrose, to continue Canada's leadership in healthcare and approve the Orphan Drug Regulatory Framework.

Read why Fire Fighter Robert Littler's fundraising for Muscular Dystrophy Canada has taken on a new meaning:
Robert Littler began collecting funds for Muscular Dystrophy Canada 19 years ago as a volunteer member of the Scotsburn Fire Department. He had no vested interest in research into neuromuscular disorders, or in supporting people with muscular dystrophy and their families. That is, until this year. Littler’s focus changed when his 18-month-old grand nephew Isaac was diagnosed with a rare form of the disease.
