We’ve been doing this since 1996. Our founders, a group of lymphedema patients and family members, responded to the absence of support services by setting up the LAO. Since then, we have expanded our scope. We have always kept the needs of people living with lymphedema front and centre. The LAO’s work continues to be made possible by our volunteers, donors and members.
The Honourable David C. Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, is the LAO’s honorary patron, helping us to raise awareness of lymphedema and our work.
The core of the LAO team is our staff members, Board of Directors and Medical Advisory Board. With our personal experiences, professionalism and expertise, the LAO is well-positioned to act as the provincial voice and advocate for quality lymphedema knowledge and care.
Our team includes:
Please contact us if you are interested in joining the Board of Directors or volunteering for the LAO.
The LAO started its life as the Lymphovenous Association of Ontario. We are registered with the Charities Directorate in this name. In 2010 we changed our everyday name to the Lymphedema Association of Ontario. Why? To more actively promote lymphedema education, prevention, treatment and quality of life for those with the condition.
The LAO is a founder and proud partner of the Canadian Lymphedema Framework, set up in 2009, and is a member of the Advisory Board of the International Lymphoedema Framework. With partners in Ontario, across Canada and around the world, the LAO is working towards better lymphedema treatment and care for all.

The LAO is working to improve access to quality lymphedema information, resources and services. We are striving for quality of life for people who are living with lymphedema – and knowledge of how to prevent it in people who are at risk for lymphedema.
