TYR -1 HT-1

CanPKU+ is an open door for those who do not have a support group already set up in Canada. 

TYR-1 is helped by a group located in Quebec. They can help in English, French and Spanish.

We refer questions of support to this group, however we are still able to help with the Disability Tax Credit.

CanPCU+ est une porte ouverte pour ceux qui n'ont pas de groupe de soutien déjà établi au Canada.

HT-1 est aidé par un groupe situé au Québec. Ils peuvent aider en anglais, français et espagnol.

Nous renvoyons les questions de soutien à ce groupe, mais nous sommes toujours en mesure d'aider avec le crédit d'impôt pour personnes handicapées.



Help Group for Tyrosinemic Children of Quebec


Groupe d'Aide aux Enfants Tyrosinémiques du Québec


CanPKU+ believes that creating awareness around Tyrosinemia Type-1 and other rare diseases helps patients…Because Knowledge Leads to Better Health.

When people are aware of a condition, they are more likely to be understanding and supportive.  This might be as simple as ensuring that there are appropriate food choices at the next party your child attends, or it might mean that a politician will fight on your behalf for coverage of treatments.

Gérard Tremblay, père de Jeannick Tremblay, préside un regroupement de parents d’enfants tyrosinémiques. Il s’est lui aussi réjoui de voir que Québec investit pour venir en aide aux familles.

According to Newborn Screening Ontario the instance of a baby being born with Tyrosinemia is type 1 is 1 in 100,000. Find out more here
