COPN: The Canadian Osteoporosis Patient Network

COPN, the Canadian Osteoporosis Patient Network, is the patient arm of Osteoporosis Canada, a national network of people living with osteoporosis.

Founded in 2004 by four friends who were determined to overcome the challenges of living with osteoporosis, this group felt living with osteoporosis need a strong voice to provide the patient’s perspective in all areas including medical matters, research initiatives, communication, public relations and education.

In support of Osteoporosis Canada’s vision of a Canada without osteoporotic fractures, COPN represents the interests of people living with osteoporosis within Osteoporosis Canada’s programs and activities. COPN connects individuals affected by osteoporosis, communicating information about how to live well with the disease and advocates for comprehensive access to diagnosis, treatment and care.
