Our Research Priority is to support clinical, translational and health outcomes research that focuses on the high fracture risk population, especially on preventing fractures and their negative consequences.

Through this link to Canadian research studies, Osteoporosis Canada targets to aid Canadian researchers seeking Canadian study participants and allow Osteoporosis Canada supporters to participate in osteoporosis research if desired.

Seeking Research Participants!

Are you aged 50 or over and have low bone mineral density, osteopenia, or osteoporosis? You may be eligible to participate in Markham, Waterloo and Saskatoon in a 12-month exercise study. This study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Board.

The team is assessing three different types of exercise programs, either delivered to participants at the local private gym or completed at home with zoom sessions. In addition to the exercise sessions, they will complete bone mineral density scans, and assessments of your physical function.

If you think you may be eligible, and you would like to learn more about the study, please contact your nearest study coordinator.
